Hernö Gin

With a tagline like "Swedish Excellence", we were expecting big things from this Hernö Gin. Then we did some more research and discovered Hernö won the most awards at the Gin Masters 2013 - our expectations went up even higher, to the point where we could see Sweden from our office! They're just lucky the gin matched those expectations, because we now know where they live...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose It certainly came from the north, as the smell of pine trees bursts out of the bottle. A sweet juniper and spicy coriander balance out the mix.

Palate Slightly muted vanilla, allowing the herbs take the limelight (by limelight, we mean there is also some nice citrus too).

Overall An absolute blast. This is a perfect introduction for Swedish gin to make. It's like it turned up at your door with flowers, chocolates and a fancy hat.

Reviews for Hernö Gin
Desert Island Gin
This is my ultimate gin and if I could only have one bottle in my cupboard it would be this one.
The delicious taste of vanilla and lingonberries are ones to savour as you slowly sip it neat or in a G&T. My G&T is made with a generous double of Hernö, 1724 tonic and a couple of slices of lime. Hernö Old Tom and Navy Strength are also worth adding to your collection, even, if like me, you are not a fan of other navy strength gins. Hernö NS is extremely smooth and not harsh whilst the Old Tom is a little sweeter but not too sweet.
It has my rating of 1 - a desert island gin!

Disappointing
I expected this would be a top gin. But that was before I tasted it. It should be good, because it's not cheap. and I'd not read anything bad about Herno or this particular gin. It has a strong flavour but not a nice taste, like there's some old fashioned cough cure mixed with it. No wonder the botanicals are not shown on the label ! Maybe it will grow on me but somehow, I doubt it.

The best gin in the world!
The taste is so clean and fresh, and the different tastes blend so well together! GT is my favourite drink and I always ask bartenders to mix their best GT. My favourite is without doubt Hernö gin, Fentiman´s tonic, cucumber and lemon for garnish, and topped with freshly grinded black pepper.

Took me some time to like but now I love it!
At first I didn't really like it all that much but I realized I mixed it too weak. Up the gin to minimum a third of the drink and it comes to life big time. I now have my Hernö close to 50/50 with gents tonic and garnished with black pepper and a slice of lemon for what I now agree to being the best Gin Tonic in the world.

Light, eloquent and flavoursome.
I discovered this on our holiday to nusnas in Sweden and fell in love with the this as much as the countryside and salted liquorice icecream. I don't like gin actually , but I absolutely love this. It's so light but flavoursome and eloquent. Takes me back to amazing sunsets and precious memories.
