Herno Blackcurrant - 28% - 500ml
PRODUCT TYPE: Gin
Introducing Hernö, the world’s most awarded craft gin brand! Founded in 2011 by Jon Hillgren, Hernö was the first ever gin distillery in Sweden. Hillgren’s passion for the juniper predominant spirit took him all around the world in search of knowledge and inspiration, and finally culminated with him setting up a distillery in the small village of Dala, just outside Härnösand in the High Coast of Sweden.
A spirit drink made from Hernö Gin that has been infused with bucketfuls of ripe blackcurrant berries. Matured for a couple of days with the berries and then pressed. Finally sweetened to enhance all the flavours of the fruit.
On the nose, bright, crisp blackcurrant with a hint of jammy tartness and a soft floral sweetness. The palate has juniper up front followed by an emerging range of complex flavours of the fruit, bold blackcurrant and sweetness with a hint of green notes of the leaf. A long finish, with a definite dry tartness and a touch of acidity followed by a hint of nuttiness. Great in a French 75 cocktail. Pairs perfectly with East Imperial Burma Tonic.
