Hernö Gin is the first dedicated gin distillery in Sweden. The hand hammered copper stills Kierstin and Marit are crafting award-winning organic gins from natural botanicals. In 2013 Hernö Gin was the most awarded gin distillery in Europe. Hernö Juniper Cask Gin, the first gin in the world matured in juniper wood casks, is made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, diluted to 47% ABV and gently matured for 30 days in juniper wood casks. The maturity gives more intense juniper notes finished with a long harmonious hint of citrus peel.
