Celebrate the spookiest time of the year with a Monkey 47 Autumn Old Fashioned, a premium gin handcrafted in the dense, mysterious and eerie woodlands of the Black Forest in Germany.
Straight out of a fairytale bedtime story, the forest is not only home to the Monkey 47 distillery, it also serves as inspiration to the Brothers Grimm’s popular folklores including Hansel & Gretel, Rapunzel, Pied Piper and Sleeping Beauty.
Grimm fairytales are widely known for creepy, not-so-happy endings, with lost children in the woods, a big bad wolf and evil charming boys! So this Hallow’s Eve, have a drink with the brothers and get a taste of the Black Forest with one of the most in-demand spirits available today!
