The plans for Milk & Honey (M&H) began in 2012, after a group of Israeli entrepreneurs and whisky enthusiasts, decided to establish Israel's first whisky distillery. Located in the south of Tel Aviv, operations started in 2014 with the first cask filled in 2015 and permanent production in place since early 2016.
Since its initial establishment, the founders employed the services of world renowned whisky consultant, Dr Jim Swan, a legend in the whisky industry with over 40 years experience. Dr Swan was involved with Milk & Honey from the very start, assisting in the distillery's set-up and pot still design, cask selection and even yeast strains. Sadly, his involvement ended with his sudden passing in 2017.
