Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin comes with quite a story, but we'll keep it short. Founded by ex-RAF pilot Montgomery Collins and named after a monkey called Max he sponsored in the Berlin zoo, this exceptional small-batch gin is distilled with no less than 47 botanicals, the most uncommon of which include verbena, hibiscus, jasmine, lingonberries, dog rose, Kaffir lime, and six different types of peppers. The flavour? A fresh, zesty combination of juniper and lime with elegant floral touches. All in all, a mastery of gin-making, and the perfect mixer for a G&T or even a Negroni.
