Introducing Hernö, the world’s most awarded craft gin brand! Founded in 2011 by Jon Hillgren, Hernö was the first ever gin distillery in Sweden. Hillgren’s passion for the juniper predominant spirit took him all around the world in search of knowledge and inspiration, and finally culminated with him setting up a distillery in the small village of Dala, just outside Härnösand in the High Coast of Sweden.
Since then, Hernö has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed craft gin brands in the world, with over 100+ awards at the Gold and Masters level.
This is a classic sloe gin, made by steeping sloes for 3 months and then sweetening the gin to balance the dryness. The nose has redberries and lime peels, with fresh juniper and lemon. The palate has cooked berries and dried fruit. A hint of honeycomb, followed by spicy clove for balance. The finish is nicely dry-ness, with notes of cherry cola and white pepper. Great with East Imperial Yuzu Tonic.
“Herno Sloe Gin. Tasty, slightly less sweetened Sloe style, delicious ripe berries.”
