Milk & Honey, Levantine Gin Oak Aged (500ml)

$89.00

Milk & Honey Distillery - Oak Aged Levantine Gin

ABV 46% 

The Levantine Gin starts the same as Milk & Honey's single malt series – 100% pure malted barley that’s mashed in-house and distilled in a pot still.

Then the team adds a heap of Juniper and botanicals, hand-sourced from Tel Aviv's Levinsky market: hyssop, lemon peel, orange, chamomile, verbena, cinnamon, and black pepper.

The botanicals are then left to rest in the still for 48 hours and then distill for the third time in the 250L pot still, for extra smoothness.

The Levantine Gin is then rested in red wine barrels for a few months in our distillery cask room, not far from the Mediterranean beach.

Aroma

Gentle scent of juniper berries, lemon and hyssop accompanied with delicate wood and vanilla in the background

 

Palate

Medium body, a little oily. Very subtle wood flavour, vanilla and citrus combined with spices, lemon and juniper

 

Finish

A long lemon finish, a bit spicy, the herb flavours stays in the mouth for a long time along side a gentle wood flavour
