A few weeks back I visited a Monkey 47 pub take over to try their New limited-edition gin which uses mint sauce, vinegar and honey to serve discerning drinkers a taste of the good ol’ British Pub!

We had a great night tasting the gin, drinking gin cocktails and trying all the ingredients which go into the limited edition gin!

The sixth edition of Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin’s Experimentum Series uses London, England’s capital city and home to over 3,500 pubs, as its muse, taking inspiration from the traditional condiments served with a quintessential British Sunday Roast.

The Experimentum Series from Monkey 47 is a range of extraordinary spirit blends based on Monkey 47’s original recipe and distillation process, which are released several times a year in quantities limited to no more than 500 bottles worldwide. These blends combine cutting-edge vacuum distillation with alternative methods of aroma extraction, making each of them an authentic flavour experience that defies categorization.

For the 2y06 edition, Monkey 47’s Booze Lab – a dedicated area at the Wild Monkey Distillery that pushes the envelope of what’s possible in sensory terms – combined the refreshing flavour of mint
sauce and the sharp taste of vinegar with the added velvety sweet taste of honey, produced at Monkey 47’s very own farm. The mint, from the brand’s own herb garden, is finely chopped and blended with a reduction of vinegar and diced pearl onions to create a macerate that is finished off with a touch of honey.

This new limited-edition truly celebrates the moments in a British Pub we’ve missed out on. There’s nothing better than a Sunday Roast at the pub with friends and family, or a quick G&T after work with colleagues. We can’t wait to shine a light on these special moments by creatively combining them and offer our discerning drinkers something truly wunderbar.”
