Life in Dala

Unapproachable, hard to get and difficult to win. Coming close to and feel the sweetness of sloeberries is associated with patience, perseverance and pain. Watch out for the thorns that will let you bleed for your love of it’s crimson sap. Big blue-black berries on barbed wire to be picked with wariness for the final reward: Hernö Sloe Gin. Enjoy it hot in a small cup as a perfect alternative to the Swedish Glögg. Or follow Helenas advice.

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.

Let our distiller Johan Wester explain Hernö Pink BTL Gin. And say hello to our awarded Hernö Dry Gin with a twist: strawberries and rose added to our original recipe and bottled in a pink bottle. This is not a cocktail. Pink Gin is a cocktail. This is a pink bottle of gin. According to European Liquor Regulation there is no product existing called Pink Gin. Pink Gin is a classic cocktail created with gin and Angostura Bitter. This launch is a statement to clearify the regulations and stay true to the tradition of gin.
