The Magnum Opus of Ada Coleman, the first female head bartender of the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel in London. Hanky panky means ”magic’” or ”witchcraft” deriving as a variant of ”hoky-poky” or ”hocus-pocus”. This cocktail is a true work of art.

“Shaken, not stirred”. Remember that Special Agent 007 had a licence to kill, he was not a bartender. So do not kill this classic cocktail by following James Bond’s command. A Dry Martini should be stirred. Never ever shaken.

Hernö Old Tom Gin

Product sheet

A legendary cocktail with a story. The Great Tom Collins Hoax of 1874 was a joke that went viral in New York and Philadelphia. It became a rage asking for the non existing person Tom Collins and newspapers were printing stories about false sightings of him. A bartender caught on and gave a drink the name Tom Collins so if anyone was making this joke they had unknowingly ordered the drink.

The jury of the world’s most prestigious spirit competition, International Wine and Spirits Com-petition (IWSC) is announcing that the IWSC Gin and Tonic Trophy 2020 goes to Hernö Old Tom Gin. This is the first time in the history that the competition is awarding the same distillery with this award twice. Last time Hernö Gin got it was in 2016. Today it’s happening again.
Media use
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 and after diluting it down to 43% we add a touch of sugar. The sweetening lifts the floral notes, releases an array of juniper and makes the gin even smoother.

Hernö Pink BTL Gin

The original Pink Gin, the cocktail. This is what Pink Gin really is. It’s actually almost more orange than pink. From the beginning a happy accident from the British Royal Navy stumbling around trying to find absolutely anything to mix their seasickness preventing bitters to make them taste less bitter. The remedy: Gin.

Hernö High Coast Terroir Gin
Media use
Hernö High Coast Terroir is a vintage gin distilled with locally picked botanicals. For the 2020 release Master Distiller and Founder Jon Hillgren got hold of chaga, a rare mushroom found on one out of five thousand Swedish birch trees, even today used for medicinal use but more importantly a great source of vanilla notes and giving depth to the gin. To complement this, the classic Hernö characteristic meadowsweet and even more floral notes with rose petals. To give some acidity Jon decided on flowering sorrel found less than 3 meters from the distillery, all hand-picked. Lastly, the blue forest gold, juniper. This was probably the most challenging to forage this year due to the drought of previous summers. With help from local heroes we managed to source just enough to make a small batch of Hernö High Coast Terroir Gin 2020.

Be led by your dreams and magic will happen. Hernö Gin is the first dedicated gin distillery in Sweden. Our hand hammered copper stills Kierstin and Marit are crafting our award-winning organic gin from natural botanicals. It all began with a passion for gin and a dream evolving to gin crafting. A journey that took Founder and Master Distiller Jon Hillgren to places and gin distilleries all around the world in his thirst for knowledge and his search for ginspiration. When he bought an 1800-century farm in Dala, situated in The High Coast of Sweden, and started to create truly organic, artisan gin inspired by the natural beauty of the region, magic began to happen. Today Hernö Gin is multiple awarded World's Best Gin and the most awarded gin in Europe 2013–2019. Hernö Gin is a dream come true.
