Monkey 47 a much sought after Gin

This much sought after gin is made with no less than 47 botanicals (the clue is in the name!), including lingon berries and, somewhat unusually, cranberries.

It is made in very small batches, in a small custom made still, at a distillery based in an 18th century mill in the Black Forest in Germany. It was created by Alex Stein and Christoph Keller and inspired by Montgomery Collins who first produced a gin in the Black Forest in the 1950s.

Some Gin fanatics refuse to mix Monkey 47 but if you do decide to mix yours it brings a gin and tonic to a whole new level.  It's expensive but Monkey 47 is probably the best Gin you will ever taste and we also love the brown cork bottle, which mirrors the design of an old chemist's bottle (with the brown glass protecting the aromas from the UV light). 

We serve 18 Variations of Gin at Garavan's Bar from Hendrick to Monkey 47 but we'd love to hear what you love about Monkey 47.
