"The World Whiskies Awards announced the winners for some of its most coveted categories at a special event on March 30th in London. Hundreds of distillers and industry veterans in attendance that night patiently awaited the big reveal: Worlds Best Single Malt. And many of them might still be busy picking their jaws up off the ballroom floor. The grand prize went not to a producer from the major malt making regions of Scotland, Ireland or Japan. Instead it was collected by M&H out of Tel Aviv. Yes, the Tel Aviv in Israel."

The distillery, formerly known as Milk & Honey, won the accolade for its Sherry Cask expressionnon-chill filtered and bottled at 46% ABV. Now weve got some exclusive words with the man responsible for crafting it, head distiller Tomer Goren.

But first were going to tell you a little bit about what this now-iconic liquid tastes like. Initially released in mid-2020, M&H Sherry Cask is part of the brands Elements series which focuses on unique components of maturation. To wit, it is actually the first whisky ever to be aged in Kosher sherry casks from the Jerez region of Spain. In the hot and arid Middle Eastern climate, the application of this cooperage has imbued the underlying whisky with a thumping melody of red fruit, dark chocolate and, ultimately, tobacco. Its a complicated symphony to consider and one which lingers on the palate for far longer than you might suspect from a non-age-statement offering.

Tasting Notes
"This is the first ever single malt whisky to be matured in Kosher sherry casks, seasoned exclusively for Milk & Honey in Jerez. Aged in bourbon, Oloroso, and PX sherry casks, this medium-bodied whisky has through lines of rich fruit and dark chocolate, with a finish of gentle oak and tobacco. Non-chill filtered with no added color. Star-K Certified Kosher. 46% ABV"

The Distillery
Founded in 2012 and nestled in the urban landscape of vibrant Tel Aviv, Milk & Honey is Israels first whisky distillery. While M&H was built upon the bedrock of Scottish whisky-making tradition (they employed the late Dr. Jim Swan, one of the worlds most accomplished master distillers, as their advisor), the Mediterranean climate surrounding the distillery has required a unique approach to tried-and-true methods, made successful by the ingenuity of Milk & Honeys passionate team. Milk & Honey whiskies are double-distilled and aged a minimum of 3 years, though the hot and humid environment accelerates aging, creating spirits that taste distinctly older than expected from their time in barrel. Employing a variety of barrel types (including specially commissioned, certified Kosher ex-sherry barrels from Jerez) M&H spirits are all certified Kosher.
