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 Whisky In Bloom Lightly Peated Young Israeli Single Malt Whisky is matured in 3 separate casks: Bourbon, Red Wine STR(Shaving, Toasting and Re-Charring), and Islay casks that add a layer of slight peatiness and a complexity to the distillate.
