Black Forest Distillers
Well, what else is there to say about Monkey 47? The marketing expert Alexander Stein and the self-taught Christoph Keller developed this gin and, as the textbook says, marketed it to sell the majority stake in Pernod-Ricard at a certain point. A stroke of genius, because even after the sale to the industrial giant, Monkey 47 remains in the hands of Alexander Stein, who ensures that the character of the handcrafted gin is preserved - even if the production volumes are of course much larger today than in the early days , when Monkey 47 was still an insider tip for connoisseurs.
It wasn't that long ago that Monkey 47 - Black Forest Dry Gin was launched as a new gin. Nothing exciting in the current gin flood - just another gin. Gradually, however, Affengin gained an international reputation through quality and original presentation that hardly any other gin has achieved in recent years. In the meantime, the gin from Hegau has become an international top seller and one may ask how the success story will continue. Thumbs up for the monkey!
The Scholerhof is located in the beautiful Markgräflerland. Iris Krader spent her childhood there, which still shapes her today. When her uncle died, Iris inherited the orchard and the associated distilling rights. It quickly became clear to her that she would continue to run the farm. Her passion for gin was inspiration enough to develop a gin herself, which is made with high quality ingredients, lovingly and in small batches. The gin is characterized by its spicy and full character and is highly valued by gourmets and fine restaurateurs at home and abroad.
Scholerhof, this name applies to a small winery with a distillery located in the heart of the Markgräflerland . The Markgräflerland in the Baden growing region extends over a length of about 60 km from Freiburg in the north to Basel in the south. It is the southernmost wine-growing region in Germany.
The Burgundian gate between the Jura and the Vosges allows a Mediterranean warmth to flow in. The winters are shorter and milder. The sun shines longer and more often than in other wine-growing regions, so the grapes reach a higher sugar content. Our family can look back on around 100 years of wine-growing history. Ten years ago I took over the winery from my uncle and it was clear to me that I would continue to follow our family's motto:
Quality over quantity < /blockquote>
There are many distilling methods and every distiller thinks theirs is the best. As with my grandfather, my motto is:
Twice burned is better
