The ingredients for making this gin are steeped in French-made molasses alcohol for 36 hours prior to being distilled through an Arnold Holstein copper-pot still. Keller combines traditional maceration and distillation techniques, as well as vapor infusing certain ingredients, to gather precise amounts of the more volatile botanicals and accentuate more sublime flavors.
The Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Sloe Gin puts one specific botanical into the spotlight ― blackthorn, also known as sloe. The close cousin of the plum is known for reducing inflammation, helping with upset stomachs, as well as several other health benefits. The berries are harvested following the first frost of the year, washed, and left to macerate for 4 weeks in their 94-proof Schwarzwald Dry Gin. By the time they draw the macerate from the top, the sediment has settled to the bottom of the tank. The liquid is then cut down to 58 proof and left to rest for an additional 6 weeks.

According to Winston Churchill, "The gin and tonic has saved more Englishmen's lives and minds than all the doctors in the Empire," referring to the British officers using it to treat malaria in India.
Initially made for medicinal purposes, gin gets most of its flavor from the juniper berries added after the distillation process. It sure has come a long way from the Middle Ages, with the introduction of new botanicals, fruits, and spices, bringing it closer to people of all flavor varieties.
The nose opens with fruity and woodsy aromas, dark fruit, blackthorn, as well as hints of juniper, nuttiness, and black pepper. It's spicy and sweet on the palate with plenty of berry notes. The finish is long, fruity, and pleasantly spicy.
