The 2023 Winner of the World's Best Single Malt Whisky from Tel Aviv, Israel
MILK & HONEY DISTILLERY SINGLE MALT WHISKY
M&H Elements Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky - recently awarded The World's Best Single Malt for 2023 at the prestigious Whisky Magazine's Global World Whisky Awards. M&H Elements Sherry — aged in both Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez casks.
To create this whisky, we travelled all the way to Jerez, Spain to oversee Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez 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 single malt whisky in the world, aged in kosher Sherry casks. This single malt reveals robust flavours of red fruit, dark chocolate, and oaky notes.
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.
