Today, we’d like to introduce you to the (ok, not-so-secret) main ingredient of the Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Sloe Gin. Blackthorn – or sloe, as Prunus spinosa is also known – as a plant steeped in myth and legend.
Once the sloe berries are harvested after the first frost, they are washed before being macerated in Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin (at 47% alcohol, of course).
Then water is added to bring the alcohol content down to 29%. After that, it takes just six weeks for Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Sloe Gin to find its way into our glasses. Cheers!
ABV: 29% | Bottle Size: 500ml
