The most challenging gin competition in the world

Hernö Gin Cocktail Awards is our yearly cocktail competition. The most challenging and unique gin competition in the world. Skills, creativity and the bartenders ability to challenge limits is crucial. This years mission will be to create a mind blowing cocktail based on what the competitors forage and Hernö High Coast Terroir Gin 2018. Many are called, but few will be chosen. In the end there can only be one.


An experience far out of the ordinary

The global final of Hernö Gin Cocktail Award is held in Skule, the heart of The High Coast of Sweden, in the same area as our distillery. Competitors from eight countries will show off their skills and do what it takes to win. This is an experience far out of the ordinary giving you the opportunity to explore a new world of cocktails with Devender Kumar from Hong Kong, winner of Hernö Gin Cocktail Awards 2017, taking the lead in the bar.
