Herno Juniper Cask Gin - 47% - 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.
Since then, Hernö has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed craft gin brands in the world, with over 100+ awards at the Gold and Masters level.
Juniper is fundamental to Gin, so why not further enhance its amazing flavour and nuance by ageing the gin in a cask made from juniper wood?
The Hernö Juniper Cask is the first gin in the world matured in juniper wood casks, made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, diluted to 47% ABV and gently matured for 30 days in juniper wood casks.
As you would expect Juniper is present on the nose, palate and finish. But it comes in different forms. Fresh, woody and green. The woody and floral juniper notes are on the nose. The palate has the fresh juniper and the finish the sappy juniper. All on a palate of cassia, vanilla and black pepper. One for the juniper freaks out there. Pairs superbly with the East Imperial Old World Tonic.
