WTC Dublin Member Highlight: Blood Monkey Gin
Co. Dublin, Ireland
Riddled with quintessential expressions, gin gets more pretentious every day. But this is Blood Monkey, the Irish Craft Gin. And following in the footsteps of genever, the godfather of them all, Blood Monkey cuts the bull, when everyone else is full of it. Our name and signature drill bit design are a nod to the act of bleeding the monkey, when 17th Century sailors drilled into the officers’ barrel to steal the liquor inside. It’s their spirit that inspires ours today. We go against the grain, independently distilling in Ireland – drinking gin straight up, without a cucumber in sight.
