Schwäbisch Confidential


© Monkey 47

En buntes Gschmisch an Hergottsbscheißerle. Or, for all those who don’t come from Schwabenland: variations on the Maultasche! One of the most beloved Swabian specialities, Maultaschen are a product of the season of Lent – that’s when many Christians follow the tradition of eschewing meat from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. Our ever-inventive countrymen and -women thus decided to put one over on the man upstairs to get their p...

Black Forest Klamauk

Whatever became of ... Ernst Stavro Blofeld?

© Discodöner

Once an international villain by trade, Mr Blofeld now lives a secluded life in the northern Black Forest, where he has been running a highly successful Ayurvedic cat salon for four years. We recently managed to convince him to talk with us about the constant passage of time. Mr Blofeld, you started what may be the most successful criminal organisation of the modern age and ran it for more than 40 ...

Triberg Falls

Germany’s highest waterfalls are another treasure claimed by the idyllic Black Forest – by the city of Triberg, to be precise, where the roaring waters of the river Gutach cascade down seven levels measuring 163 meters in total height. A breathtaking spectacle of nature, to be sure, and don’t forget this extra tip: The way in which they ionize the surrounding air makes waterfalls the place to ...

Delicate Delirium

A story about classic designs, the context of pleasure, and speaking without words

© Monkey 47

“ Dear Julia, we’re working with Lobmeyr on unveiling a new tumbler. Why don’t you get yourself to Vienna to have a look?” This was the basic gist of the job they gave me. I have to admit, my expertise in glasses up to that point was limited to “Mum’s good champagne flutes – the ones with the gold around the rim – don’t go in the dishwasher” and a mnemonic for somme...

The Endless Expanse - The travel journal of photographer Jochen Hirschfeld

Part 1/4 - The Trans-Mongolian Express

© Jochen Hirschfeld

They say that even the longest journey starts with a single step. In this case, it was just one word: Ulaanbaatar! The name had been echoing through my head like the guttural war cry of a fierce warrior on horseback. It was the unfamiliar sound of a faraway land that had made me dream of travelling to Mongolia for a good long while. The little I knew of the country ...

2y03: Vienna – Monkey 47, apricots and poppy

© Discodöner

The art of distillation goes hand in hand with chasing aromas and rendering them in liquid form – although alcohol is merely the medium, not the actual goal of the process. Meanwhile, the world of spirits is divided into categories rather than sensory components and the possibilities associated with them. It’s a form of conditioning that stands in contrast to our obsession with variety and innovation. Why do distillates and spir...

© Lazi & Lazi

Konnichiwa, fellow proponents of botanical curiosity! The 10th year of our obsessive hunt for exotic aromas took us to the Land of the Rising Sun – to our most trusted cooper, to be exact. After starting our effort to acquire the Holy Grail of ageing barrels back in 2016 and spending two years pleading our case, we finally secured the right to purchase five of these prized vessels. We’re thus proud to p...
