Monkey 47 Sloe Gin Schwarzwald Dry Gin
Admittedly, it appears somewhat eccentric to claim that a recipe for gin has the power to unite great British traditions, the exoticness of India, and the purity and nativeness of the Black Forest. And yet it is precisely this eccentricity that defines the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins, from whom the Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. His childhood as the son of a diplomat in East Asia, his military career among the ruins of Berlin, and his late-adopted home in the Black Forest supply the autobiographical background for a recipe that represents an audacious combination of native Black Forest herbs and berries and exotic Asian botanicals.
Monkey 47 Sloe Gin takes its name from the 47 ingredients that are used to make it. Each bottle of Monkey 47, which are inspired by old-fashioned pharmacy bottles has a vintage-label which shows a monkey holding a different ingredient. On the label for Sloe Gin, it is shown with a sprig of sloe.
Sloe Gin is a peppery, strong and complex spirit that has aged in stone barrels for about three months. It is aromatic and complex with distinctive fruity notes and flavours of juniper and ripe berries. Hints of almonds are followed by a nutty yet tart finish.
