Herno Old Tom Gin, Sweden

TASTING NOTES

Winner of The Worlds Best Gin two years running (2017 & 2018).  In addition, it also won Best Old Tom and Best Contemporary Gin. So it is safe to say that this is a very good gin!

Like all Herno gins, Old Tom is organic and contains eight botanicals: juniper, coriander, myrtle, cassia bark, black pepper, vanilla, cranberries and lemon peel. In Herno Old Tom Gin, however, extra myrtle has been added to give it a sweeter flavour which is what the old cat dispensed gins used to taste like.

After distillation a touch of honey and sugar is added to add further sweetness.

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%, adding a touch of sugar. The sweetening lifts the floral notes, releases an array of juniper and makes the gin even smoother.

NOSE: Hernö Old Tom Gin is full-bodied with woody spice. Followed by bright, juicy, juniper and floral notes.
PALATE: Super-smooth texture with a light sweetness and botanical notes. An array of juniper, green and crispy, followed by notes of pine flowers.
FINISH: A floral sweetness combined with woody spice and long-lasting juniper characterizes Hernö Old Tom Gin.

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.

Producer

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 me to places and gin distilleries all around the world in my thirst for knowledge and my search for ginspiration.

When I 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 the most awarded gin in Europe.

HERNÖ GIN IS A DREAM COME TRUE.

Jon Hillgren, founder and Master Distiller, Hernö Gin.
