Hernö Sipping Gin 2022, a mature kitten with a Portuguese accent.

Hernö Sipping Gin 2022, neat.

Matured sixty days on port barrels från Caves Santa Marta, Hernö Old Tom Gin has developed a completely new taste profile in this year’s Hernö Sipping Gin. In a tribute to the tradition of port, Hernö Sipping Gin 2022 is floral and juniper forward with oak leading on the nose, followed by almond and caramel, butter and vanilla. A rich texture with nutty notes and dates. To be launched on June 15 in Sweden.

This years launch of Hernö Sipping gin is the the sixth in the series. Previous years Hernö Dry Gin has been matured on casks from Laphroaig, Ardbeg, High Coast Distillery and Brännland Iscider with origin from Sauternes.

– When the opportunity to buy a cask from Caves Santa Marta in Portugal came up, we felt directly that we would like to mature our Hernö Old Tom Gin this time. To get a slightly sweeter touch. After sixty days the balance between port and gin was just perfect, says Johan Wester, Head Distiller at Hernö Gin.

– I will enjoy Hernö Sipping Gin 2022 together with my mother-in-law Marit. We have a common tradition that has grown during the years: To share a glass of port together when she’s visiting us in Dala. To dedicate Marit a gin created in a still bearing her name and with a character who pays tribute to the tradition of port, that will take our moment of honor to a new level next time we meet, tells Jon Hillgren, Master Distiller and Founder of Hernö Gin.
