Hernö Gin (Mini) 5cl
This is a classic smooth London dry gin, done the Swedish way
Hernö is the first dedicated gin distillery in Sweden, and is located in Dala on the high coast of Sweden. They only produce organic, artisanal gins, which are inspired by the natural beauty of Sweden.
This is a smooth and well rounded London dry gin, and is the most awarded gin in Europe, and for good reason!
On the nose it has a definite juniper aroma, which is rounded out with citrus notes but also has a floral complexity to it. A smooth gin, it coats the mouth, and has a mild taste of coriander. This soon melts into a mellow sweetness which combines with vanilla and cassia bark.
As the flavours melt away, the finish results in a lingering citrus and juniper taste with just a mild hint of black pepper.

Particularly smooth, and coating the mouth well this is a gin which can be enjoyed sipped. However it also works well as a long drink in a gin & tonic. Either a neutral tonic, or one with a citrus edge work well. Three Cents tonics work particularly well. Pour 50ml of the gin into a large glass filled with ice, and add 150 - 200ml of your chosen tonic. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
