Whisky production has exploded globally over the last 10 years, with new distilleries coming online on an almost monthly basis. For more recent ones, it will still be many years until drinkers have access to actual whisky, but for Milk & Honey, Israel's first whisky producer, their whisky is finally here.. and by here, we don't mean metaphorically speaking, we mean on our shelves, corks at the ready!

Last month saw the inaugural Old Mutual Trophy Spirits Show (OMTSS), a local spirits competition open to all South African producers and importers. The show, a first of it's kind in SA, scores and ranks all entries across a series of categories, identifying gold, silver and bronze medalists and awarding a trophy to best-in-class. The objective is to identify the top spirits and liqueurs available in the South African market.
