One of the world’s most award-winning gin brands, Herno Gin may just the best gin for a gin and tonic, in the world.
Created by Jon Hillgren, a Swedish bartender living in London who was inspired by his love of gin to create his own. John not only took part in copious amounts of gin tasting but began seriously studying gin and making technical visits to distilleries all over the world.
John eventually settled in the village of Dala just outside the City of Härnösand in Ångermanland, Sweden. All part of the UNESCO world heritage area called The High Coast. The natural beauaty of the area was an inspiration for John to create a truly organic gin with the finest botanicals.
Hernö Gin was released on the 1st of December 2012. During 2013 Herno Gin received two Gold medals at the global gin masters. At the end of 2013 Hernö Gin was the most awarded gin in Europe and the distillery also received the Gin Grand Master. Since then, it has continued to rack up awards and acclaim.
Herno's 8 botanicals (Juniper, coriander, pepper, cassia, vanilla, lemon peel, meadowsweet and the uniquely Swedish lingon berries) combine to create a complex and intriguing gin with a lingering juniper character. Hints of fresh citrus are topped with a floral complexity that makes this a delicious gin to enjoy neat.
