At the World Drinks Awards yearly gala in London Hernö Old Tom Gin was awarded as the World’s Best Gin. Just days after at Gin Summit held by American Distilling Institute in Washington it was confirmed by the judges – Hernö Old Tom Gin is Best of Category.
Hernö Gin Distillery has a history of success in the most prestigious competitions in Europe and is the most awarded gin in Europe for the past four years. Last year Hernö Gin was awarded the World’s Best Gin & Tonic and Gin Producer of the Year. The trend continues – Hernö Gin officially distills the World’s Best Gin.
“An excellent example of contemporary gin. Rich juniper and gentle perfume aromas in a creamy soft style. Succulent rich and smooth texture. Good juniper depth. Exceedingly well-balanced. Delicate and finely balanced with a long finish.” – World Drinks Awards
At the same time across the Atlantic, in Washington, Hernö Gin entered a competition outside of Europe for the first time. American Distilling Institute (ADI) named Hernö Old Tom Gin and Hernö Juniper Cask Gin Best of Category in their respective classes. In total Hernö Gin has been awarded no less than 54 Master and Gold medals since the launch back in 2012.
– This is a fantastic confirmation to the hard work and love that we put into crafting our spirits, I am both happy and proud. says Jon Hillgren, founder and Master Distiller, Hernö Gin.
American Distilling Institute is the biggest and oldest organization in the US for independent craft distillers and has over 1000 members. In one of the protocols from the judges we can find the following comment: ”Nice inviting nose, makes one wish to try it – Tasty!”.
