The history of Gin

The spirit Gin is a distilled liquor which derives its flavour from the berries of the juniper tree. It was invented by the Dutch doctor François de la Boe. He is credited with being the first, who distilled juniper berries with alcohol. He distilled juniper berries as an herbal medicine and called it genever, the Dutch word for juniper berries. English soliders, who were fighting with the Dutch against the Spanish in the Eighty Years' War, brought the drink to Britain and called it "Gin". The spirit became highly popular and was also heavily consumed in tropical British colonies. Gin was used to mask the bitter flavour of quinine, which was the only effective anti-malarial compound during this time. Quinine was dissolved in carbonated water to form tonic water; the resulting mix became the origin of today's famous Gin & Tonic combination!

Tasting Profile of Monkey 47 Gin:

„My parents brought me a bottle while they were on holidays in Germany. I really like this gin. the bottle is nice, the label is nice and the gin itself is very nice. personally i would prefer the taste to be less dominant, but it mixes well with any tonic.“

Frank from Netherlands

Monkey Gin is just tasty, fullstop. If you have tried it, you know what I´m talking about...."

Roger from USA

„In honestly think that Monkey 47 Dry Gin is one of the best gins on the market. Usually I prefer to drink Tanqueray No. 10 as I like a strong juniper aroma. Monkey 47, as it is distilled with 47 herbs, has a much more complex profile. Grapefruit is present with a slightly peppery note. Mixed with your favorite Tonic Water, I drink Fevertree, it has a very unique aroma. Overall this monkey is a perfect variation if you normally drink the more classic gins."
