As is widely known, our often-showcased botanical curiosity reaches its distillatory crescendo during our quest to find the "Species Rara", that one extra-special ingredient for our Monkey 47 Distiller's Cut. But as lovely as the views tend to be, does that always have to mean huffing and puffing across dizzying mountain ranges? Au contraire... This year, that good old wanderlust and our penchant for experimentation led us into the ...
