Join our Distillery Tour!

There’s an old saying that goes “softly, softly, catchee monkey”. But what if you don’t like
waiting? Well, you no longer have to, as we’re now giving you the chance to experience what was previously reserved for a select few. Come take a peek at the Monkey 47 distillation process and find out everything you’ve always wanted to know about gin but didn’t dare ask.

Yes, you heard that right – we’re granting access to the Black Forest monkey’s holy temple where you will be welcomed with open arms.
We do have a couple of ground rules, mind you.  First of all, we operate "by appointment only".  Second, to ensure you have a great experience visiting the distillery at the Schaberhof, we’ve set the maximum tour group size to 20 people. So it’s a case of first come, first served – the early monkey gets the banana.  Please note that, in the interest of everyone, we will turn away visitors without a valid invitation.

Zum Wilden Affen

For some time now, Monkey 47 has been produced in the Black Forest at a distillery dubbed “Zum Wilden Affen”. This facility is located at the Schaberhof just south of Lossburg, near the former site of a village called Vogelsberg that first appears in the annals of history around the year 1297. Same same, but different: Having achieved a fine balance of artisanal tradition and Black Forest ingenuity, Black Forest Distillers continue to craft Monkey 47 following the same historic recipe as always – just in new environs. For this purpose, the company worked with the Markdorf-based coppersmith Arnold Holstein for more than two years on designing and manufacturing a one-of-akind distilling operation. Assembled solely by hand using time-honoured methods and qualitative specifications based on extensive, shall we say, testing, the Apparatus Alembicus Maximus represents the beating heart of the “Zum Wilden Affen” distillery.
