Founded in 2012 and nestled in the urban landscape of vibrant Tel Aviv, Milk & Honey is Israel’s first whisky distillery. While M&H was built upon the bedrock of Scottish whisky-making tradition (they employed the late Dr. Jim Swan, one of the world’s most accomplished master distillers, as their advisor), the unique Mediterranean climate surrounding the distillery has required a unique approach to tried-and-true methods, made successful by the ingenuity of Milk & Honey’s passionate team. Milk & Honey whiskies are double-distilled and aged a minimum of 3 years, though the hot and humid environment accelerates aging, creating spirits that taste distinctly older than expected from their time in barrel. Employing a variety of barrel types (including specially commissioned, certified Kosher ex-sherry barrels from Jerez) M&H spirits are all certified Kosher by the Tel Aviv Rabbinate.
Milk & Honey Classic Israeli Single Malt Whisky is the first commercial Single Malt Whisky by M&H. The Classic single malt whisky is made using the finest ex-bourbon casks and our special red-wine STR casks, giving it a light and balanced character. Matured under the Tel Aviv sun. It has a gentle vanilla sweetness followed by light oak and floral notes, light body, vanilla, caramel and honey sweetness, balanced by woody notes and light black pepper spiciness. The finish is short but delicate. The oak notes linger in the palate for a while with a nice light spiciness.
