NEW MAKE

UNAGED SINGLE MALT

An outstanding whisky begins with an outstanding New Make.

New Make is the clear spirit flowing from our pot still, that after a few years of barrel aging becomes whisky. While the wood and the aging process are responsible for most of the final product characteristics, the New Make is the basis of every whisky - it allows us to taste and feel the beginning of a great single malt whisky and its malt and yeast flavors.

Our Single Malt New Make is double-distilled 100% malted barley and bottled at 50% abv./100 proof.

This is a delicate, smooth spirit, which is still complex and flavorful, despite its young age.

NOSE

Malty sweetness, red fruit and marshmallow, with hints of clean air after the rain.

PALATE

Medium body, malty sweetness and grassy green followed by delicate bitterness.

FINISH

Medium length. Delicate bitter mouthfeel on the tongue, followed by malty sweetness that is expressed after swallowing, with hints of chocolate.

TIP

Enjoy The Milk & Honey New Make with a little water, that further releases its flavors and complexity. Our New Make is a superb cocktail ingredient too; go to our cocktail page and try recipes developed specifically for it.

LEVANTINE GIN

SINGLE MALT GIN

Our gin starts the same as our single malt series – 100% pure malted barley that’s mashed in-house and distilled in our pot still. Then we add a heap of Juniper and botanicals, hand-sourced from Levinsky market: cinnamon, chamomile, black pepper, lemon peel, verbena, coriander and hyssop. We then let the botanicals rest in the still for 24 hours and then distill it for the third time in our Gin-Genie 250L pot still, for extra smoothness. 46% abv./92 proof.

NOSE

Delicate notes of juniper berries, lemon and hyssop.

PALATE

Delicate botanical tastes, with juniper and lemon being the dominant notes.

FINISH

Medium-bodied, a little oily. Long, lemony finish.

TIP

Levantine Gin is a fantastic base for a classic martini or G&T, and any cocktail that calls for a flavorful, higher-proof, no-nonsense juniper-based spirit.
