Milk and Honey Classic single malt whisky is an excellent single malt from Israel’s first malt whisky distillery. With the help of the late master distiller Jim Swan, M & H Distillery have managed to produce a range of outstanding whiskies. Based in Tel Aviv, the distillery has to contend with a much warmer climate than most whisky-producing regions, and this is where Jim Swan’s expertise came in handy. He specialised in producing whisky in warmer climes, and malts such as Kavalan in Taiwan and Amrut in Taiwan are testament to his expertise. It should come as no surprise then that Milk and Honey Classic is a single malt well worth trying.
This is the first readily available single malt from the distillery. It is unpeated and matured in ex-bourbon and ex- red wine casks which have been shaved, toasted and re-charred. Bottled at 46%, it is non-chillfiltered and no colour is added.
Although many single malt whiskies can be considered kosher, Milk & Honey Classic is certified kosher on the label.
