Israel's M&H Distillery signs UK distribution deal with Penderyn

Israel's trailblazing M&H Distillery has announced the long-awaited launch of its first range of single malt whiskies into the UK market.

The Tel Aviv-based distillery has signed Welsh whisky maker Penderyn as the exclusive UK distributor of its new series, The Elements, as well as its Classic Single Malt - the first Israeli whisky.

M&H was established in 2012 under the leadership of the legendary Dr Jim Swan, with the hot Middle Eastern climate helping the distillery team to create unique spirits. Its whiskies are currently available in markets including the US, Canada, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia and South Africa. 

Its Classic Single Malt Whisky is aged in ex-Bourbon and rejuvenated wine casks, while the three releases in the Elements series feature a different cask element designed to enhance the liquid.

The M&H Distillery also produces Levantine Gin, made from 100 per cent malted barley that is mashed in-house, which is already available in the UK.

Eitan Attir, CEO of M&H, said: "Despite the global situation, 2020 has been the most exciting year for us with the worldwide release of our first collection of single malt whiskies. We are very enthusiastic about this partnership with Penderyn, who we believe is the best partner to develop our brand in the UK."

Stephen Davies, CEO of Penderyn Distillery, said: "We're proud to distribute the M&H's single malts collection to the British public. There's a new world of single malts out there to be explored, and the M&H Distillery is bringing its unique taste of Israeli whisky to our shores."
