A new multi award winning whisky from Tel Aviv
MILK & HONEY DISTILLERY SINGLE MALT WHISKY
M&H Elements Red Wine Cask Single Malt Whisky. Ex-red wine casks that were sourced from Israel's finest wineries were picked for this part of the Elements trilogy. The Mediterranean’s climate, variety of soil types, hot sunny days and cool nights bring a spicy and unique flavour to Israeli wine – and in turn, our casks. The wine casks used in the Elements Red Wine are a celebration of local terroir, creating a floral single malt with notes of dark chocolate.
Nose: Red dried fruits, ginger, oak, and delicate coconut bouquet lead a gentle mineral perfume.
Palate: Light bodied. Wine flavors coat the mouth, accompanied by subtle oak and vanilla notes, followed by gentle floral blossoms.
Finish: Medium. The dried fruits and wine linger, finishing with a touch of dark raisins.
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.
