Monkey 47 Dry Distiller Gin. Slightly hazy, water white, colourless. Pronounced intensity of perfume, juniper, lingonberry, violets, lavender, orange and grapefruit zest. With water added, more perfume and citrus notes to the fore. Dry on the palate. Warming alcohol, medium body, pronounced flavour intensity. Long finish. Very complex. Outstanding example of a premium gin.

I bought a 1000ml bottle of this gin and it's nearly gone. Monkey 47, when served with Fever Tree Refreshingly Light Tonic, is a stunningly fresh, lively, complex and intriguing drink - no guest has ever been satisfied with just one. It's a hell of a gin. Aromatic and arresting, the myriad herbs that comprise Monkey 47 each play their note in the orchestra that is this gin. I'm English and I like London gins, and perhaps I'm lacking loyalty by loving this Black Forest beauty, but so be it. This Monkey's Gone to Heaven.

All that and then some. I don’t throw out 10’s a lot, but when I do... this gin is wild. The botanicals, the weight, the freshness. This may be the best spirit I have ever tasted.

I am a happy girl! Received my FAVORITE Gin as a (very, very) belated birthday gift. Distilled from 47 unusual botanicals which combines English tradition, Indian exoticness, and the purity of the Black Forest. I am drinking straight up slightly chilled where I sip, savor, smile, and repeat. #monkey47
