Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut Vertical (2010 - 2021)

1 in stock

Nearly every year since 2010 the team at Monkey 47 have released a limited edition called the Distiller’s Cut - also known colloquially as 'Monkey 48'. 

The idea behind it is simple but effective - to select and add one additional ingredient each year to their existing recipe of 47 botanicals.

Over the years its popularity has grown among fans and collectors, to the point that it is now sold by a lottery system in Europe.

Often, but not always, the 48th ingredient - or 'species rara' - is sourced from the Black Forest in Germany where the distillery itself is located.

Other examples have come from the mountains of Switzerland (2017), subterranean London (2018) and UAE (2019).
