Hernö Gin Distillery has by the prestigious British Airways onboard magazine been ranked as number one of the best gin distilleries to visit to taste gin. Hernö Gin Distillery is located in the village of Dala just outside Härnösand in northern Sweden. A bit down on the same list you can find distilleries located in the great cities of London, New York and Madrid.
– It is of course very honoring for us to have our newly opened Visitors Center ranked as number one on this list of great distilleries, says Jon Hillgren, founder and Master Distiller at Hernö Gin Distillery.
Quote from High Life:
“Distiller Jon Hillgren had discussed his passionate dream for a gin distillery with friends for many years before finally making it a reality when he ordered a German copper pot still (called Kierstin) in May 2012. At 250 liters she is a small batch beauty worth seeing with your own eyes. Having recently added an additional building to host tours, the distillery — based in the village of Dala, near the Härnösand — is now open for visitors. With a full portfolio of gin styles on offer, each made using an organic process, it is easy to see why this distillery has won the Gin Grand Master Award and gathered a reputation in such a short time.”
