Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut 2022 Gin
Botanical curiosity, obsessive pursuit of unparalleled quality, numerous expeditions on the hunt for exotic aromas, Species rara – et voilà, Monkey 47 Distiller’s Cut. Each year, the cult favorite gin producer releases their special, highly sought after Distiller's Cut, which adds one extra special featured botanical to their classic base of 47 other botanicals to create something truly unique.
For this year’s edition, they didn’t have to travel any seas, climb any mountains, or descend deep below the surface of the earth to search for the near-mythical 48th ingredient. Some of the best things are right there under your nose, and this edition’s Species Rara was found in the wooded expanse just beyond the distillery gates. Woodruff, or in German, Waldmeister, is a member of the Bedstraw (Rebiacae) family that owes its unique, pungent aroma to the coumarin it contains. With its aromatic profile, Monkey 47 Distiller’s Cut Edition 12 is a spicy and elegant Dry Gin that features delicate, almost ethereal top notes of cinnamon and vanilla against a backdrop of extraordinary density and complexity.
