Exclusive Auction of Milk & Honey Israel's First Single Malt Whisky
Friday 11th August - Monday 21st August
Another exciting exclusive brought to you by Whisky Auctioneer. Live from Friday 11th, we will auction Israel's First Single Malt Whisky from the country's first whisky distillery, Milk & Honey!
The release comprises of 391 numbered bottles in total, with bottles number 1 through to 100 being sold by Whisky Auctioneer in the upcoming dedicated auction.
The distillation of this historical whisky is part of the distillery's "Experimental Series" that took place before all the industrial equipment was purchased. The barrel was distilled together with internationally renowned master distiller, the late Dr. Jim Swan, as part of his role as consultant to the distillery at the time.
Every part of the whisky making process has taken place in Israel and thanks to the surrounding hot climate conditions the 3 year old single malt spirit has developed a mature and complex character well beyond its years. Aged in new 225 litre American oak casks for two and a half years before being finished in ex-bourbon barrels, the tasting notes are an enticing mix of citrus, spice and marzipan - light bodied and finely balanced.
Established in 2012, the team behind Israel's first whisky distillery are dedicated to creating world-class whisky using traditional custom-built equipment and high quality ingredients.
Recent years have seen awards and plaudits shower down upon distilleries that have pioneered whisky production within their own countries, think of Taiwan’s Kavalan and Japan’s Yamazaki. We have no doubt that Milk & Honey could well be the next to follow in their footsteps, making this a very exciting opportunity to secure one of their first bottlings!
