Behind a small door in the heart of an industrial area of Tel Aviv, not far from the old port of Jaffa, resides the first whiskey distillery in Israel.

The Milk and Honey, a name right out of the Book of Exodus, started out as a dream by six high-tech entrepreneurs who wanted to create something for themselves and their friends.

We started out making beer in our living room, as a hobby, said Gal Kalkshtein. And then one night, one of us said maybe we should try whiskey. We did some research, and then we decided to start a crowdfunding campaign.
