Hernö Gin is the first distillery in Sweden that produces only gin. The beginning of Hernö takes us to an 1800-century farm in Sweden, where the founder Jon Hillgren created organic artisan gin by himself, inspired by the nature around him. Jon discovered gin when working in a bar in London after studying and working in the field of political science, the gin dream haunted Jon and in 2010 he followed his friend’s advice: “Stop talking and start to act!”. Jon founded Hernö Gin and with the financial help of his wife, sister, brother-in-law and a friend built a distillery and used the first pot still Kierstin to produce the first gin. Hernö Gin was an immediate success in local stores and was the most awarded gin at The International Gin Masters in 2013. Hernö was expanded, a new distillery was built, and Hernö got even more awards, to the pint that Hernö was the most awarded gin in Europe between 2013 and 2017. Now the two copper stills Kierstin and Marit produce delicious Swedish gin. In 2017 the Hernö restaurant opened and the success story of the brand is only continuing.

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 botanicals. It all began with a passion for gin and a dream evolving to gin crafting. A journey that took Founder and Master Distiller Jon Hillgren to places and gin distilleries all around the world in his thirst for knowledge and his search for ginspiration.

When he bought an 1800-century farm in Dala, situated in 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.
