New Zealand Manuka Honey is world famous for its healing properties, and is an important ingredient for a number of health-giving products.
On the other hand, famous Scotch whisky is a recognized as the standard for genuine high-quality whisky worldwide.
In Western culture Whisky & Honey home remedy is traditional and widely used.
The goal was set for Alex Kirichuk was: to keep the taste of quality Scotch in the sophisticated combination with the Manuka Honey and healing Botanicals’ tincture. As the result I can present my all-natural Manuka Honey Whisky handcrafted at Puhoi Organic Distillery with the involvement of Dr Iryna Kirichuk (MD).
The Manuka Honey Whisky project was realized in collaboration with The Whisky Library owner Tony McHugh. Tony is a supplier of the wide range of fine Scottish Whisky sourced directly from Scotland and exclusively for his company. It was Tony who supplied me with the carefully selected Scotch which I used as the base for Manuka Honey Whisky.
I could say that I am indeed happy with the achieved result; the nose still retains all the distinctive notes of fine highland Scotch, but the palate is much softer. Manuka Honey has organically blended into the taste and the botanical composition rounds it all well and provides a very enjoyable aftertaste. The spirit is absolutely clear and the colour is beautiful amber.
