Distillery 24-Höfe, Lossburg
Master Distiller: Christoph Keller
Description: 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 defi nes the enigmatic character of Montgomery Collins, from whom our Schwarzwald Dry Gin originates. MONKEY 47 – Distilled from 47 predominantly unusual but regional botanicals such as lingonberries and blended with natural spring water. Cheers!

Nose/Taste/Finish Juniper

The mountain ranges of the Central and Southern Black Forest (as well as the neighboring Swabian Mountains) are still home to numerous heathlands dotted with age-old juniper trees. Which is why juniper berries have always been used to give aroma to the famous Black Forest ham. Before being smoked, the entire ham is marinated in a juniper berry paste whose fine aromas are absorbed into the meat. For Montgomery Collins, the man who had made his home in the Black Forest, therefore, the path to producing gin was an extremely short one. To create our gin, however, we must venture further afield, as we use only selected, fully ripened berries from Tuscany with whose sun-blessed aroma our native juniper berries cannot compete.

Spicy Notes

A number of spices from East Asia lend Monkey 47 its fiery, complex aftertaste. Some of our chosen spicy ingredients include six different kind of peppers as well as cardamom, nutmeg, and almond to name a few….

Floral Notes

Conveying the crisp, floral note of a gin belongs to the great art of distilling. In addition to lavender, which is traditionally used to lend commercial gins their floral aroma, we also use the blossoms of Black Forest Acacias and wild honeysuckle as well as the blossoms of Monarda didyma (Scarlet Monarda)

Over het festival

Ooit, lang geleden, werd in Nederland voor het eerst jenever gemaakt. Oorspronkelijk dronk men het als geneesmiddel, maar al snel werd er volop genoten van dit fijne drankje. Later namen de Engelsen dit van ons over, door ook te gaan distilleren met jeneverbessen. Zij gebruikten alleen neutrale alcohol, terwijl jenever van moutwijn wordt gemaakt. Zo ontstond gin. Gin kennen we allemaal en het goede nieuws is dat ook jenever met een wereldwijde comeback bezig is. Onze nationale drank is inmiddels bijna 400 jaar oud. Ooit de meest gedronken drank ter wereld, nu een openbaring voor de liefhebber.
