HernÃ¶ 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 HernÃ¶ Gin was the most awarded gin distillery in Europe. HernÃ¶ Old Tom Gin is made from the same distilled gin as HernÃ¶ Gin, but with an extra amount of Meadowsweet added in the distillation and after diluting it down to 43% Herno add a touch of sugar.
