To toast the Jewish New Year, 5780, the holiday that starts at sundown, Sept. 18, you can now pour some kosher single malt, made in Israel’s first whiskey distillery. Milk & Honey, or M&H Distillery, in Tel Aviv, makes a range of kosher malts with different finishes. Among them, the Elements Sherry Cask Single Malt, aged in kosher-sherry casks, had a brightly earthy aroma and was complex with some sweetness on the finish. The company also makes Levantine gin, fruity and somewhat sweet, with za’atar added to the botanicals.
