The legendary Pegu Club in Burma, in which Montgomery Collins – the forefather of Monkey 47 – undoubtedly spent many an enjoyable hour, is shrouded in numerous myths and tales. This was a traditional gentlemen’s club with cast-iron rules: Only high-ranking British military officers and successful businessmen were allowed to enter. The locals, on the other hand, did not stand a chance. (Although, if the legend is true, Monty once managed to smuggle the colonial beauty Esmiralda inside). And in true British style, the house cocktail was based on, you’ve guessed it, gin: the Pegu Club. According to Harry McElhone, add 4 cl Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin, 1 cl Orange Curacao, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 dash of Angostura bitters and a dash of orange bitters to a shaker with ice cubes, shake vigorously for half a minute and pour into a chilled coupette. An outstanding aperitif that lends a charmingly bitter flavour to our monkey. Cheers!
