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.
To create Milk & Honey Elements Sherry Cask Israeli Single Malt Whisky, we travelled all the way to Jerez, Spain, and had Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry made especially for us. The casks, once filled with quality sherry and seasoned for one year in Jerez, were brought to the distillery to mature our New-Make spirit for a wonderful complex whisky. The M&H Elements Sherry is the first and only kosher single malt whisky in the world, aged in Sherry casks. This single malt reveals robust flavors of red fruit, dark chocolate, and oaky notes. Bottled at 46% alc/vol, Non Chill Filtered, Natural Color. Kosher.
