Hernö Gin is the world’s leading and most awarded craft gin producer. Proud pioneers who started the first gin distillery in Sweden back in 2011. It all began with a passion for the juniper predominant spirit and a dream evolving to gin crafting. A journey that took Hernö Gin’s founder Jon Hillgren to places and gin distilleries all around the world in his thirst for knowledge and search for inspiration. Finally settling in the small village of Dala just outside Härnösand in the High Coast of Sweden where the distillery is located today
A word from Jon Hilgren: I love gin, it’s hardly a secret. I know that you share my passion. In my creation, I put a lot of importance into the fantastic history and tradition of gin. Juniper predominant, no gimmicks. With that said, I don’t mind creative and new products in the segment. Today we see many
products that are riding on the increased interest in just gin, however, I am concerned that gin as a product and concept is watered out. More and more “gin” is emerging that tastes anything but juniper. That is why I agree with the crowd that demands greater compliance with the EU’s definition of what may be called just gin. Herno Pink Bottle Gin in April 2020 is contribution to the call not to destroy the gin’s heritage and history. It is a pink bottle of gin; the liquid is obviously transparent. A gin with fruity and floral notes that so many are asking for, and with a predominant flavour of juniper. We have actually used an extra amount of juniper in this product compared to our current products. To make sure we stick to what gin should be. This is a no bullshit gin.
