Monkey 47 | Germany

Origin Germany
Alcoholic Volume 47º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals 47 botanicals in total. 23 grown in the Black Forest. 25 impart flavor and scent to the Gin. 22 increase the complexity of aromas...and hinder copying.

Brief Description
Looking back at the Monkey 47 long story, we get the idea that its success is just the result of an immense succession of serendipity. This is how the creators - Alexander Stein and Christophe Keller - describe it. Nothing more false. Monkey 47 is the result of hard work, a methodical approach and the assumption that nobody is born taught but everyone can learn. Indeed, none of the two even knew how to distill.
Using an ancient old recipe from a British commander who resided in the Black Forest in the postwar period, Alexander and Christophe analyzed a total of 120 Botanicals and selected 47. They tested, tested and tested again. They noted, adapted, tested, adapted again and noted again. A rigorous experimentation process that led them to create one of the most emblematic Gins we know today.
The complexity is evident at the first contact. There is the Black Forest fresh fruit and spicy touch and the resinous juniper, all competing in an orderly bouquet able to touch everyone. The complexity continues on the palate, never losing the connection to a more traditional gin with the presence of the juniper and fresh citrus.

Brief Description
The sea is the source of inspiration for the Gin Mare as it is highlighted on the top of the bottle with the expression "Mediterranean Gin." The evidence is the liquid inside the blue translucent glass.
The four main botanicals are rosemary, olive, basil and thyme. The warm rosemary aroma, greasiness olives, fresh basil and thyme smoke, all evoke the scents of the Mediterranean.
The botanicals are macerated and distilled separately, with the exception of the citrus - sweet and bitter oranges and lemon. 
The first breath is naturally herbaceous with notes of rosemary and juniper. The freshness of the basil and the olive are also present in a surprising armony. In the mouth, it is the softness of the alcohol that stays, leased by the touch of olive. The rosemary, cardamom and juniper are also notorious giving it a herbal and salty taste.

Master's | Spain

Origin Spain
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Cardamom, coriander seed, bitter orange peel, sweet orange and lemon and juniper.

Brief Description
From Distillery MG - with centuries of distillation history - was born Master's Dry Gin. This is a traditional London Dry with some variations in the production process.
Master's is the result of three distillations. On the first, cardamom, coriander and juniper are distilled cold. On the second, there are three different macerations with citrus - sweet orange, bitter lemon and orange, which rest more than one year. The spirits obtained from the two first distillations are then combined and distilled one last time.
The Master's assumes itself as a gin where the botanicals appear immediately and the juniper comes in a secondary role.

Tips & Tricks
Friday | Portugal

Origin Portugal
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Cardamom, gaga grape vine leaf, orange blossom, tropical fruit and juniper.

Brief Description
Friday Chic Gin was born in the heart of the Bairrada region - North of Portugal - in a distillery with many years of experience in the production of the best sparkling made in Portugal.
The vine leaf from the Baga grape - variety found in this region - enters the distillation process adding an astringent touch to the Gin. Although unnoticeable is of utmost importance since it is the counterpoint to the sweetest aromas of orange blossom and tropical fruit.
The breathe feeling is extremely pleasant. The alcohol taste is very soft and the fragrant notes of ripe fruit and floral touch invite to a deeper inhalation. In the mouth, the softness, sweet and fruity touch of this Gin is confirmed. The juniper is less noticeable than in most Gins which makes Friday extremely soft.

G'Vine Florasion | France

Origin France
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Ugni Blanc vine leaf grape, liquorice, cardamom, cassia, coriander seed, ginger, lime peel, nutmeg, Cubeba pepper and juniper.

Brief Description
Like its Nouaison brother, the G'Vine Floraison uses the Ugni Blanc grape as its alcohol base. This grape is especially adapted to the distillation process because of its high acidity - this is the immediate difference between G'Vine and the remaining Gins that use a cereal alcohol base. 
G'Vine Floraison is an extremely soft Gin with a very rich bouquet of aromas dominated by the perfume and fresh flowers. In one hand, the neutral alcohol used in the base gives it an immediate and differentiator velvety feel. On the other, the vine flower used in the distillation gives it a fresher floral note. The end is dry and the notes of juniper are notorious as well as the slightly spicy taste of ginger.
The Floraison green version is fresher and lighter than its counterpart and seeks to capture the ephemeral and vibrant fragrance of the Ugni Blanc flower time of birth. On the other hand, the Nouaison captures the time between flower to grape, hence its strong and deep character.

Origin Scotland
Alcoholic Volume 44º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Caraway, angelica root, chamomile, coriander seed, orange and lemon peels, iris root, cucumber, Cubeba pepper, rose petals, elderberry and juniper flower.

Brief Description
Hendrick's revolutionized the Gin world when it introduced the fresh cucumber aromas and the soft scent of rose petals instead of the more traditional citric versions. Hendrick's was born at the turn of the millennium and soon it distanced from the status quo. Banished the citrus into the background and gave priority to the freshness of the cucumber and the rose petals elegance. Hendrick's also innovated in the production process which uses two different stills. The Bennet where botanicals are placed directly in infusion and the Carter-Head where botanicals are arranged in layers and their scents dragged by steam. Hendrick's comes from the combination of the strength of the first with the elegance of the second and last infusion and from the cucumber from Belgium and Holland and roses from Bulgaria. Hendrick's has a fresh and floral aromas but leaving space for the juniper.

Tanqueray Ten | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 47,3º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Licorice, angelica root, chamomile, coriander seed, whole lime and white grapefruit and juniper, among others.

Brief Description
Tanqueray Ten was only born at the beginning of this millennium. In 2000, Tanqueray Gordon & Co launched the Gin that soon became their image. The name comes from Tiny Tim - the alembic No. 10 where the heart of this citric Gin is distilled. Limes and white grapefruit - whole fruit and not just peel - are distilled in small stills. The obtained spirit is then transferred to a larger still where they are mixed with the other botanicals. Tanqueray Ten has a higher alcoholic volume and more juniper than its older brother. Nevertheless, it is an extremely mild Gin due to the fresh scent of citrus that comes on the first feel, nose or mouth. The 47.3 alcohol volume gives it a depth of flavor where there is space for the juniper and chamomile floral touch before returning again to the citrus which gives it a fresh characteristic in the end. The alcoholic volume and its depth of flavor makes it a mandatory addition to cocktails, particularly with Martinis.

Martin Miller's | England

Origin England
Alcoholic Volume 40º
Type New Western (or Distilled Gin)
Known Botanicals Licorice, angelica root, cassia, coriander seed, iris root, cucumber and bitter orange, lemon and lime peels, juniper.

Brief Description
Sir Martin Miller was disappointed with the way the British national drink - Gin - was going. Therefore, he decided to produce his own version which became one of the most emblematic Drys on the market. He only needed time to tune the distillation process where most botanicals are separated from the citrus to better maintain their character and find the water to do justice to the spirit obtained. The water for dillution comes from Iceland where Sir Martin Miller thought he found the most pure and soft water on the planet. Martin Millers has a well pronounced juniper aroma, accompanied by citrus notes (fresher than in most Gins, as a result of the distillation method used) and a rich, spicy and lasting palate without losing its lightness and elegance. A Gin made with love, obsession and a dose of madness makes it elegant for a gin and tonic and its flavor will endure beyond other ingredients on a cocktail.
