Since the new Milk & Honey Classic arrived on our shelves nearly two months ago, it has been very well received with positive feedback all round. Local whisky drinkers have embraced the opportunity to try another new world whisky producer, and most importantly, the whisky is delicious and the price is right. In fact, it was our 5th best selling whisky last month, which says a lot considering the top two spots were occupied by WB exclusive single casks.
As a sign of the (COVID) times, and in collaboration with the local importer and distributor, Universal Beverages, we have organised an online tasting with Milk & Honey!
Next Thursday, 17 September at 7pm (SAST), we will be dialing in to the Milk & Honey distillery for an exclusive online tasting. Tomer Goren, head distiller, and Tal Chotiner, head of international sales, will be joining us live from Tel Aviv to take us on a brief tour of the distillery, give us a short presentation on the whisky and history, as well as run us through a virtual tasting.
The tasting will cover four drams: Pomegranate wine cask sample, M&H Elements Sherry, M&H Elements Peated and the M&H Classic. Although only the Classic is available to purchase in SA (for now), the rest have been made available in a tasting pack to some lucky media and whisky industry folk. Regardless of whether you have a tasting pack, a bottle of M&H Classic or neither, we really hope you will still join us for the distillery tour and to learn more about the whiskies and the people behind this exciting producer.
Register here to attend the tasting. Once registered you will receive a reminder email before the tasting starts.
WIN A TASTING PACK
We don't have enough tasting packs to go around, or even to make available online for sale, but we do have a few extra that we will be giving away to some lucky whisky-lovers. To stand a chance to win one of nine tasting packs, simply do one of the following:
- If you've already bought a bottle of M&H Classic, review the whisky on our website
- If you haven't bought a bottle, buy a bottle of M&H Classic
- Post an image on Instagram or Facebook and tag us along with Milk & Honey
For each of the three options, we will randomly choose three lucky recipients and send them a tasting pack. Entries close on Sunday 13th at midnight, so that we have enough time to get the winners their samples before Thursday's event. To be eligible you must reside in South Africa and be 18 years or older.
We look forward to you joining us and seeing you online!
