The Milk and Honey Distillery is launching what it claims to be Israel's first single malt whisky. Launching in June, the whisky was created in a kibbutz in the Sharon region of Israel and were originally aged in 225-liter American oak casks. They were then transferred for additional aging in ex-Bourbon casks in Tel Aviv, which were then packed in a 391 bottle run, each of which are individually numbered. The whisky's unique liquid is said to maturate faster than Scotch and is equivalent to a single malt aged from six to eight years.
