- Wing Commander Montgomery Collins of the RAF created the gin when he was posted to the British zone of Berlin after the World War II, inspired both by the local flora and his upbringing in Madras.
Collins also sponsored a monkey in Berlin Zoo and later opened a guesthouse called the Wild Monkey. When the house was being done up at the start of this century the recipe was rediscovered and the gin was reborn as Monkey 47.
This is certainly not just another Gin. Some would even go so far as to say, the 'King of Gin's'! One would be forgiven for thinking it to be somewhat eccentric. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic character of ex RAF pilot, Montgomery Collins, from whom this Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. Monkey 47 is Distilled from 47 predominantly unusual but regional botanicals such as lingonberries and blended with natural spring water.
- The world's most famous wine critic has thrown his weight behind Black Forest craft gin brand Monkey 47.
At a press conference in London this evening Robert Parker, famous for "making or breaking" wine brands by scoring them out of 100, said that if ever a gin deserved 100 points it was Monkey 47.
Parker said: "Monkey 47 is the greatest gin I have ever tasted. It's as good as it gets. If ever a gin deserves 100 points it's that.
"The aromatics on it are just amazing."
