BE LED BY YOUR DREAMS

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 botanics. 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 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.

HERNÖ GIN MOVIE

FEEL THE BLISS OF SOLITUDE

There is a power and a great beauty in solitude. Situated in the middle of nowhere, but yet a strong spot on the map of the ginworld, the village of Dala has a natural beauty inspiring to create and make dreams come true. Dala has the perfect soil for purity and passion, which is the most important ingredients in our products. The result is a gin so palatable that there is no need to mix it with anything else.

SHARE THE FUN WITH OTHERS

We love to be social. While we are bringing ginlovers from near and far closer to the outskirts of the world we are going places. In everyday life and in our minds. Openness, curiosity and joy characterize who we are and how we relate to others. It is also the secret behind development and success. Networking, cooperation and knowledge exchange is taking us further on our journey. And we are welcoming everybody that wants to follow us on the road.
