Black Forest Distillers
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.
