Vanguard Luxury Brands has announced the addition of Hernö gin to its portfolio, available in Australia from May 2017.
Founded in 2011, Hernö is Sweden’s first dedicated gin distillery, located in the village of Dala. Taking inspiration from distillery’s UNESCO world heritage area surroundings, Master Distiller and founder of Hernö gin Jon Hillgren have created high-quality organic, artisan gins with the finest botanicals.
The small distillery has been Europe’s most awarded gin for four consecutive years. This past year alone, Hernö received four trophies, 14 Master and Gold medals, and ten other medals from the International Wine and Spirits Competition, International Spirit Challenge and The Spirits Business.
On the distribution deal, James France of Vanguard said, “We’re excited to be working with Jon and his wonderful Hernö gin. Hernö delivers so well on taste and packaging, and its slew of international awards underscores that we’re working with the best.”
The range consists of Hernö gin, Hernö Navy Strength gin, Hernö Old Tom gin, Hernö juniper cask gin (the world’s first gin aged in juniper wood barrels) and Hernö Sloe gin.
