Hernö Gin was established in 2012 by Jon Hillgren. In only a short space of time, Hernö was piling up the awards and accolades. Situated in the village of Dala on Sweden's coast, Jon's philosophy revolves around pristine water and organic botanicals, the combination of which results in a purity that defines Hernö Gin.
Hernö Old Tom Gin is made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, but with an extra amount of Meadowsweet added in the distillation and after diluting it down to 43% they add a touch of honey. The sweetening lifts the floral notes, releases an array of juniper and makes the gin even smoother.
The Old Tom has been awarded Worlds' Best Gin at the World Gin Awards for a staggering two years in a row! In both 2017 and 2018, Hernö Old Tom Gin took out the top gong, along with a whole swag of other awards along the way.
This is one gin that is definitely not to be missed.
Hernö Old Tom Gin is full-bodied with woody spice. Followed by bright, juicy, juniper and floral notes. Super-smooth texture with a light sweetness and botanical notes. An array of juniper, green and crispy, followed by notes of pine flowers. A floral sweetness combined with woody spice and long lasting juniper characterizes Hernö Old Tom Gin.
