Black Forest Distillery is a family-owned and operated craft distillery located in the Black Forest region of Germany. Founded in 1685 by the Kloepfer family, it is one of the oldest distilleries in the world – been making brandy, liqueurs, and spirits for over 300 years, and is renowned for its unique techniques and recipes.

A good third of the ingredients for the much celebrated Monkey 47 Dry Gin. In total, 47 handpicked ingredients go into its making including unusually ‘cranberries’. As well, its bottled at a healthy 47% ABV. After distillation, it is rested in earthenware vessels to allow the spirit to gently oxidize and soften.

Unrivaled complexity and quality. Citrus zest, mint, elderberry, juniper, ginger, and white pepper notes. The palate offers sweet orange, allspice and cloves. The long and lingering finish include spice, dried fruits and herb flavors. It has received notable critical acclaim throughout its lifetime. Concentrated and impactful, this is a sipping gin much too good to be used as mix. New 375mL format for Alberta.
