Israeli single malt now in South Africa

M&H (Milk & Honey) Distillery is Israel’s first whisky distillery producing one-of-a-kind whisky and spirits within the unique climate and atmosphere of Tel Aviv.

Launched globally earlier this year, M&H’s Classic Single Malt Whisky is the world’s first commercial Israeli single malt whisky and has already received accolades from the industry winning Gold medals at The International Spirits Challenge 2020 and Frankfurt International Trophy 2020.

M&H was started by a group of Israel’s tech-savvy, innovative thinkers who embarked into a new realm of world-class whisky dilation. Since its establishment in 2012, M&H Distillery has entered the circle of distilleries experimenting with whisky production in hot climates.

M&H Distillery was developed under the mentorship of late whisky legend Dr Jim Swan to ensure top quality and cutting-edge innovation. Working within Scottish whisky guidelines, M&H Distillery has been as experimental as one can, pushing the boundaries within a once traditional industry.

The label continues to innovate by testing new flavours and properties. One such experiment has brought M&H Distillery to produce special spirits in different climate zones across Israel, including the Dead Sea and Negev Desert.

M&H’s Classic Single Malt Whisky is 100% kosher and has been matured in the finest ex-bourbon and special red-wine STR casks, giving it a light and balanced character with notes of vanilla and light oak, alongside subtle notes of black pepper.

The Classic Edition of M&H Distillery can be purchased in South Africa here.
