Hernö Old Tom Swedish Gin

Hernö Old Tom Swedish Gin

  • Gin
  • Sweden, 500ml

On the nose, sweet and subtly grassy at first. Herbaceous notes of cassia and coriander start to develop after a minute or two. On the palate, strong backbone of pine resin and chewy juniper, with honey'd sweetness and a touch of lemon zest following it up. Fresh vanilla and juicy berries to finish.

  • Distillery: Hernö Distillery
  • Type: London Dry Gin
  • Region: Harnosand, Sweden
  • Alcohol: 43%
  • Volume: 500ml
  • Goes with: Ice, premium tonic

Crafted from natural and carefully selected organic botanicals.

It's got a cat's face on the bottle, harking back to how Old Tom Gin got its name - the tom cat-shaped plaques outside London gin houses from the olden days, where you'd put a coin in the cat's mouth and the bartender would dispense a shot of gin from the cat's paw.

Founder Jon Hillgren believes that if you are led by your dreams, magic will happen, and his dream of creating the world’s best gin catapulted him on a journey from working as a bureaucrat, to travelling all around the world to follow his “thirst for ginspiration” and opening Sweden’s first dedicated artisan gin distillery. From a passionate, abstract idea to a world-renowned craft spirit in just a few short years, Hernö is here to show you just how good an all natural gin can be.

With their secluded farm in the dramatic Swedish high-country, their artisan hand hammered copper stills Kierstin and Marit, and their relentless passion for crafting organic gin from the finest natural botanicals, they are distilling every discerning gin drinker’s dream in every bottle. Hernö believes in the great power of solitude, and their gin is inspired by the invigorating alpine landscape where it is distilled.

Openness, curiosity and joy define these gin-preneurs, helping them to bring the world a range of gins so palatable you won’t even need a mixer!
