First Israeli whisky launched

30 May, 2017

Israeli distillery Milk & Honey will put 391 bottles of Israel’s first single malt whisky on sale in June.

The liquid is called ‘Israel's first single malt whisky’ and has been aged in cask for minimum three years which is being stored at the distillery in south Tel Aviv.

The whisky is a result of a successful crowd funding campaign and the barrel was distilled in January 2014 in a warehouse in the Northern Sharon region by Head Distiller Tomer Goren and the late Dr. Jim Swan.

The liquid was aged for 31 months in a 225-liter virgin American oak cask and then for another seven months in an ex-bourbon cask matured at the distillery's cask room in Tel Aviv.

The first bottles of Israeli single malt whisky will go on sale to the public in June, distributed by Hacarem at select stores nationwide.


Sales of the first 100 bottles will begin on July 7 for 10 days through an international online auction.
