Herno's Blackcurrant Gin Liqueur is a deliciously fruity, dark and flavoursome combination of Swedish gin, local whole blackcurrants and local honey. Delicious on its own, it can be used instead of cassis in an alternative Kir Royale.

Made by the Swedish distillery Herno which was crowned Gin Grand Master at the 2013 Spirit Masters Awards. Their 'Swedish Excellent' has been matured with blackcurrants and honey to create this ink-coloured and very Nordic take on sloe gin. It doesn’t go overboard on sweetness but has enough to make it a delicious sipping drink akin to a liqueur.

Country Of Origin: Sweden
It all started back in 1999 when Jon Hillgren went to London together with a few friends to start working as bartenders. He quickly discovered gin and instantly fell in love with it. During the years that followed, his passion for the drink evolved into gin crafting, and after copious amounts of gin tasting, academic studies and technical visits to distilleries around the world, Jon finally founded the Hernö Gin Distillery in 2011. At the time, it was Sweden’s first dedicated gin distillery and the world’s northernmost gin distillery. As testament to Jon’s dedication and passion for creating beautiful gin, Hernö was recently crowned the World’s Best Gin. The distillery is located in the village of Dala just outside the City of Härnösand in Ångermanland, Sweden. All part of the UNESCO world heritage area called The High Coast, it is an area of real natural beauty. Jon takes inspiration from this beauty to create a truly organic, artisan gin with the finest botanicals. To stay true to its Swedish heritage, the distillery is built in a traditional Swedish manor in wood painted in red and white.
