The Milk & Honey (M&H) Distillery was established in 2014 and is located in Tel Aviv, Israel’s first city and the heart of Israel’s culinary and drinking scene. Located in one of Tel Aviv’s up and coming neighbourhoods, M&H is a part of the city’s fabric, among entrepreneurs and innovators, makers and artisans. They built the distillery in their hometown, alongside the beachfront, the lively markets and the architecture. It is here the owners of the distillery collect their inspiration and passion for their whisky and strive to make world class spirits.
It’s no secret that the climate in the middle east is so hot and dry with an average 300 days of sun recorded each year. The climate is used in this instance to create a whisky which takes on specific terroir and challenges centuries old techniques and traditions. With a minimum of three years maturation the whisky is graceful. The distillery hired the late Dr Jim Swan, one of the world’s most accomplished Master Distillers and an expert in hot climate distillation and maturation, as an advisor. With its own custom made traditional copper still and the use of exceptional barrels which include but not limited to, ex-Bourbon, ex-red wine and kosher sherry barrels the Distillery produces some excellent whisky.
