At Sydney Bar Week, enter the Wunderbar of Sophistication

Once upon a time, there was a garden of gin dreams; the Wunderbar of Sophistication.

The Wunderbar of Sophistication, some of you may have heard of such wunderful place. Inside holds some of the most delicious delights ever known to the bartenders of the world. Led by an unusual balance of 47 botanicals, some discovered by the wunderful Monty Collins, the first to name Max The Monkey, Schwarzwald Dry Gin, and others handpicked by Alexander Stein himself, our leader of the Black Forest. Their passion, drive, and love for all things gin, beauty, and sophistication has come together to create what we know and love today, Monkey 47 Gin. 

There is more to the Wunderbar of Sophistication than just the beloved Monkey 47. Behind every great event, there is a greater cocktail, a skilled cocktail maker, and an exquisite spirit. This combination is the essence that the Wunderbar of Sophistication is built on. Uniting the delicacy of Monkey 47, with some of the best drink makers around, to bring you something extremely special. 

Taking a nod from the classics, and a twist from the new world, we will take you on an immersive, delicious, escape from the norm. Step through the garden and into an entire new world, familiar to what you have known before, but somehow different to the usual.
