Hernö Brenneri: Hernö hails from Angermanland, Sweden. Founded by Jon Hillgren in 2011, Hernö Brenneri is located in the village of Dala just outside the City of Härnösand in Ångermanland, on the east coast of Sweden. At the time it was Sweden’s first dedicated gin distillery and the world’s northernmost gin distillery. To stay true to its Swedish heritage, the distillery is built in a traditional Swedish manor in wood painted in red and white. British Airways’s in-flight magazine ‘Highlife’ describes it as the best distillery in the world to taste gin. Hernö Gin is the most awarded gin in Europe for the fourth year in a row. All Hernö gins are one-shot-gins, only diluted with water, from Hernö’s own well, and not chill-filtered.
Hernö's Juniper Cask Gin was released in London on the 9th of September 2013 and during 2014 awarded with a Gold medal from International Spirits and Wine Competition (IWSC). Later on we received Master medals from the Global Gin Masters 2015 and 2016 for this unique gin which also received Gold Outstanding from IWSC 2015 together with Contemporary Gin Trophy. We are the only European gin distillery to receive this newly established award.
