Monkey 47 Gin


Now available in the U.S., Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin has won several awards not only for taste, but for its unique bottle design, including an iF Award for Packaging Design, a Red Dot Award for Design, and a German Design Award for Packaging, among others. Commissioned for Black Forest Distillers, the bottle is the reincarnation of an old pharmacy bottle with brown glass to protect the contents from light. Brand owner Alexander Stein designed the purple hand-drawn label, which resembles a stamp from the Victorian colonial era.

Monkey 47, which is a rare-batch distilled, craft product, is currently one of the most expensive gins on the market. Distilled from 47 handpicked botanicals (including the gin’s special ingredient, lingonberries), Monkey 47 is macerated in a combination of pure molasses alcohol and soft natural spring water from sandstone wells in the Black Forest.
