In the meantime, we’ll be featuring a new theme every week throughout the sale, and this week, it’s Hernö, the world’s most-awarded craft gin, which is now available in Malaysia for the first time ever!
Wholly Spirits are now the exclusive Malaysian distributors of this highly-acclaimed gin from Sweden, which has won pretty much every top award a gin producer can win in almost every spirits competition it has been in.
Founded in 2011 by Jon Hillgren, Hernö was the first ever gin distillery in Sweden. Hillgren’s passion for the juniper predominant spirit took him all around the world in search of knowledge and inspiration, and finally culminated with him setting up a distillery in the small village of Dala, just outside Härnösand in the High Coast of Sweden.
Since then, Hernö has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed craft gin brands in the world. In the last five years alone, Hernö Gin has had multiple wins at the prestigious International Spirits World Competition, including the International Gin Producer Trophy (twice), Contemporary Gin Trophy, London Dry Gin Trophy and the Boutique Distiller of the Year and numerous Gold Outstanding and Gold medals.
Wholly Spirits now carries Hernö Gin’s entire range, which is now available at a special introductory price only for The Great Gin Sale!
Hernö Dry Gin
Crafted from natural and carefully selected organic botanicals, Hernö Dry Gin is a round and smooth London dry gin diluted to 40,5% ABV. It was awarded with IWSC World’s best London Dry Gin and World’s best Gin & Tonic but is also very enjoyable on its own.
Nose: A round juniper character, fresh citrus notes and a floral complexity.
Palate: A rich and lightly oily texture, with fresh, crunchy green and spicy notes of coriander. A mellow sweetness combined with vanilla and cassia bark.
Finish: Long and lingering, with long-lasting citrus and juniper with a hint of black pepper.
Hernö Old Tom Gin
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. After diluting it down to 43%, a touch of sugar is added, which lifts the floral notes, releases an array of juniper and makes the gin even smoother.
Nose: Full-bodied with 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 long-lasting juniper.
Hernö Navy Strength Gin
A bold flagship rich in flavour, Hernö Navy Strength Gin is made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, but diluted to 57% instead of 40,5%. The difference in aroma and taste is very clear and Hernö Navy Strength has an overall richer flavour with bolder juniper, coriander and citrus.
Nose: Hernö Navy Strength Gin has a bold juniper character with fragrant citrus, fresh and peppery notes.
Palate: Sappy with crisp juniper followed by spicy citrus and spring floral notes. A lot of flavour with sippable texture and a little warmth.
Finish: Hernö Navy Strength Gin is spicy and peppery with a mellow warmth, a long and lingering, yet smooth, finish.
Hernö Juniper Cask Gin
The first gin in the world matured on juniper wood casks, made from the same distilled gin as Hernö Gin, diluted to 47% ABV and gently matured for 30 days in juniper wood casks. The maturity gives more intense juniper notes finished with a long harmonious hint of citrus peel.
Nose: Fresh woodiness and junipery pine with soft citrus blossoms.
Palate: A sublime thick texture with gentle dryness. A lot of green juniper upfront with herbal pepper, followed by a mild vanilla sweetness.
Finish: Aromatic citrus and floral notes of coriander before a long lingering finish of sappy juniper.
Hernö Pink BTL Gin
An organic London Dry Gin, with no additives such as colour, artificial aromas or sugar. Gin shouldn’t be coloured as a marketing gimmick. This is a fruity and floral gin yet juniper predominant. Distilled with a total of eight organic botanicals including juniper, strawberries and rose petals. Bottled at 42%.
Nose: Loads of juniper upfront, crisp green forest. Fresh citrus and red fruits, a bit spicy.
Palate: Floral start followed by an array of sappy juniper, red fruits and coriander. A citrus forward gin with underlying spice and cassia.
Finish: Strawberries linger together with juniper and spicy notes, a mellow warmth and long finish.
Hernö Sloe Gin
Made from Hernö Gin and infused with organic sloe berries as a traditional Sloe Gin. A ruby red dream matured for three months together with ripe berries. Finally sweetened to achieve the perfect balance between the gentle dryness of the sloes and the floral freshness of Hernö Gin. Enjoyable on its own and goes very well in a Gin and Tonic. Produced in batches of about 1 800 bottles, 30% ABV.
Nose: Soft, floral blackthorn with a gentle sweetness of vanilla. A touch of nuttiness and mellow woody notes.
Palate: A jammy sweetness up front before the flavour gradually gets dryer and tarter. Notes of meadowsweet with a floral creaminess.
Finish: Hints of dried flowers and hay along with a creamy nuttiness and dry berries. Gentle, but lingering, with a little tartness.
Made from Hernö Gin that has been infused with bucketfuls of ripe blackcurrant berries. Matured for a couple of days with the berries and then pressed. Finally sweetened to enhance all the flavours of the fruit. Enjoyable on its own and lovely to serve in a French 75.
Nose: Bright, crisp blackcurrant with a hint of jammy tartness and a soft floral sweetness.
Palate: Juniper up front followed by an emerging range of complex flavours of the fruit, bold blackcurrant and sweetness with a hint of green notes of the leaf.
Finish: A long finish, with a definite dry tartness and a touch of acidity followed by a hint of nuttiness.
