100 bottles of Milk & Honey Israel's First Single Malt Whisky to be auctioned.

A little later than I told you it would be happening, Israel's first-ever whisky, Milk & Honey, the first whisky distillery in Israel have announced the date when they will auction off 100 of the first bottles, produced by head distiller Tomer Goren, together with master distiller, the late Dr. Jim Swan, on the Scottish whisky auction site Whisky Auctioneer.

The Milk & Honey distillery will auction off the first 100 bottles of single malt whisky as part of a global online auction that will begin on August 11, 2017 and run for a period of ten days. At the auction, the first bottles will be sold as a special edition (1-100) of the "experimental series" of the first-ever single malt whisky produced in Israel.

Israel's first single malt whisky by The Milk & Honey Distillery is the first whisky to be produced and bottled in Israel after being aged for three years in barrels.

Distilled on the 14th Jan 2014 the liquid was aged for 31 months in a 225 litre 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. It was bottled at 46% ABV on 2nd April 2017, it has no added colouring and is non chill-filtered.

They say the first whisky to be produced in Israel is characterised by hints of malted barley, with soft notes of orange along with a delicate woodsy taste, cinnamon, lemon and marzipan.

The public auction will be conducted over the well-known Scottish auction website whiskyauctioneer.com. Each bottle of whisky comes in a special box, is hand numbered and includes a personal parchment scroll. The remaining bottles of the single malt are currently offered for sale at select stores throughout Israel, distributed by Hacarem, with a very limited inventory.
