Herno Old Tom Gin - 43% - 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.
Hernö Old Tom Gin is made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, but with an extra amount of Meadowsweet added in the distillation. After diluting it down to 43%, a touch of sugar is added, which lifts the floral notes, releases an array of juniper and makes the gin even smoother.
A full-bodied nose with woody spice. Followed by bright, juicy, juniper and floral notes. The palate has a super-smooth texture with a light sweetness and botanical notes. An array of juniper, green and crispy, followed by notes of pine flowers. The finish is long with vanilla and juniper. Try it in a Tom Collins or a G&T with East Imperial Old World Tonic.
