NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- A Drinks International survey confirms: the world's best bars count the German gin, Monkey 47, as the top trending spirit brand in the world as well as the 2nd most frequently requested gin by consumers.
Who distills the top trending and most requested brands in the world? The Drinks International editorial team of international influence sought the answer to just this question. The specialist publication for the alcoholic drink culture did not ask just anyone though, but rather the "World's 50 Best Bars". The leading establishments in metropolises from Los Angeles to Tokyo feature on this list drawn up by Drinks International. The editors wanted to know from those in charge what the "Top 10 Trending Brands" actually are, and which brands are most in demand among customers.
The "Who's Who" of Spirit Brands
The list naturally sounds like the "Who's Who" of the world's leading brand names, which have been firmly established on the market for decades now. Yet a young ape has also successfully infiltrated this circle of big shots and even topped the list, relying on its unmatched taste and quality. And he is from none other than the Black Forest. The world's bartender elite named Monkey 47 as the top trending brand across all spirits categories and the second most frequently requested gin in the world. "We are extremely pleased that our carefully crafted product has been accepted into this circle of otherwise well-established authorities. It is wonderful to see that the leading bars' patrons are requesting and holding small, high quality brands in high regard because this is what it is all about," says Alexander Stein, CEO and Founder of Black Forest Distillers, of the award.
Ascending to lofty heights
The Black Forest Distillers actually began distilling their gin according to a long-lost recipe back in 2008. Within a matter of years, the newcomer had joined the quality spirits at the very pinnacle of the connoisseur scene. Since being introduced in the United States in April of 2014, Monkey 47 has garnered over 725 million media impressions in top publications and has been named "the greatest & most complex gin ever made" by Robert M. Parker Jr. and "Best of the Best" by The Robb Report.
MONKEY 47 - Just another gin?
Certainly not! Bollenhut, turban and bowler hat – a batch distilled and handcrafted gin that fuses British traditions, the exoticism of India, and the purity and originality of the Black Forest with masterly craftsmanship. A genuine Black Forest dry gin. Indeed, a good third of the ingredients for this special gin originate from the Black Forest, such as the spruce tips, lingonberries, elderflower, sloes and blackberry leaves, to name but a few. In total, 47 handpicked plant ingredients prepared in extremely soft spring water from our very own Black Forest source lend Monkey 47 unrivaled complexity and quality. The piece de resistance is a real Black Forest "secret weapon," fresh lingonberries. Through masterly distillation and maturing in traditional earthenware containers, the goodness of all these ingredients is brought fully to bear.
MONKEY 47 is available in a 375ml size with a suggested retail price of $44.99. Visit www.monkey47.com or www.facebook.com/MONKEY47drygin for additional information. Monkey 47 Gin, 47% Alc./ Vol., imported exclusively by Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. New Rochelle, NY. Drink Responsibly.
