The all new Distiller’s Cut 2015

You know how it is – botanical curiosity, a desire to explore new sensory territory, a knack for discovering particular aromas and, last but not least, an eagerness to stay in good spirits (feed the monkey!). The quest for the species rara, or that one special ingredient for our Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut, led us this year to...

Species Rara in Bronze. In autumn 2013, the makers of Monkey 47, Alexander Stein and Master Distiller, Christoph Keller, together with their team had the idea of honouring outstanding individuals for their exceptional endeavours.

Now the egret monkey is entering the thir...

This year’s herbal hunt culminated in an arduous alpine expedition ...

In 2016, their passion for the unique led the Monkey’s minders back to the groves and valleys of the Black Forest. This is where the Schaberhof – a farmstea...

Monkey 47 The Becher

Mens sana in corpore sano.

In addition to upholding proven German craftsmanship and continuing traditions that have withstood the test of time, the form ...
