Arts & Crafts Dopplebock Single Malt
This single malt whisky has been fully matured in ex-beer casks from the highly-acclaimed Ha'Aretz Brewery, a prominent Israeli craft brewery located on the edge of the Negev desert. These casks, originally ex-bourbon casks granted to Ha'Aretz by M&H, were in-turn used for the maturation of a special DoppelBock (double-bock) beer, characterized by a sweet aroma and a palate rich in chocolate and toasted malt notes. After 4-6 months, the beer was extracted and the casks returned to M&H, re-filled and matured to perfection for 3 years. One of the casks in the edition spent a full year of its maturation in the M&H Dead Sea Project, enhancing its flavour to the maximum.
