In November 2016 Hernö Gin was named GIN PRODUCER OF THE YEAR, in the world. At IWSC’s yearly banquet in London Hernö Gin received two IWSC trophies. If being named Gin Producer of the Year wasn’t enough, Hernö Gin also received the GIN & TONIC TROPHY 2016, one Gold Outstanding, two Gold medals and five more medals from the IWSC.
Hernö Gin has a history of great achievements at the International Wine and Spirits Competition and 2016 was no exception. Since the launch of Hernö Gin back in 2011 the small craft distillery has been awarded over 40 international Master and Gold medals.
– I am humbled by yet again receiving world class awards for my gin. For me this is proof of crafting an exceptional gin that changes the view on what gin is all about, says Jon Hillgren, Master Distiller and founder of Hernö Gin Distillery.
Last year Hernö Gin was awarded BOUTIQUE DISTILLER OF THE YEAR 2015 and CONTEMPORARY GIN TROPHY 2015 at the IWSC. This makes Hernö Gin holder of no less than four prestigious IWSC trophies in just two years.
