Nestled in the urban landscape of vibrant Tel Aviv, Milk & Honey was founded in 2012 as Israel’s first whisky distillery. While M&H Distillery 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), Tel Aviv’s unique Mediterranean climate calls for entwining these tried-and-true methods with an ingenuity only made possible by such a passionate team. Milk & Honey’s 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.
This special edition has characteristics that will reflect the distillery’s future classic single malt whisky and is a double-cask bottling comprised of ex-red wine (STR) and ex-bourbon, aged for a minimum 24 months. Surprisingly well-balanced for its age with hints of biscuit and cherry on the nose, followed by notes of vanilla and mace and blossoming structure. Certified Kosher by the Tel Aviv Rabbinate. 46% ABV
