Monkey 47 Sloe Gin: A Taste of the Black Forest (50cl)

Introduction

For sloe gin enthusiasts seeking a luxurious and complex expression, look no further than Monkey 47 Sloe Gin. This 50cl bottle from the renowned German distillery offers a unique taste experience, marrying the bold botanical character of Monkey 47 gin with the rich, plummy notes of sloe berries.

Production Process

Crafted in the heart of Germany's Black Forest, Monkey 47 Sloe Gin embodies the region's rich tradition of fruit distillates. The base spirit starts with their award-winning Monkey 47 gin, a complex blend infused with 47 botanicals. These botanicals include juniper berries, coriander seeds, angelica root, and citrus peels, contributing a robust and well-rounded base.

Freshly handpicked sloe berries, also known as blackthorn berries, are then macerated (soaked) in the Monkey 47 gin. This process allows the vibrant flavours and natural sugars of the sloes to gently infuse the spirit, creating a harmonious balance between the gin's juniper backbone and the sweet, plummy character of the sloe berries. After a meticulous three-month resting period, the gin is bottled at a lower ABV of 29%, resulting in a luxuriously smooth and approachable liqueur.

Tasting Notes

Nose:  The first impression on the nose is a delightful interplay between the unmistakable juniper character of Monkey 47 gin and the sweet, jammy aroma of ripe sloes. Hints of almond and cherry emerge alongside subtle citrus notes, hinting at the complex botanical symphony beneath the surface.

Palate:  The initial sip delivers a burst of sweet, plummy flavour, reminiscent of damson jam or ripe blackberries. The Monkey 47 gin botanicals soon come to the fore, with a refreshing wave of juniper and citrus zest balancing the sweetness. Subtle earthy notes and a hint of peppery spice add further complexity, creating a truly captivating taste profile.

Finish:  The finish is long and lingering, leaving a pleasant warmth on the palate. The sweet and tart notes of the sloe berries weave seamlessly with the juniper and citrus from the gin, creating a lasting impression of sophistication and depth.
