DISTILLERY PROFILE | Nahmias et Fils Distillery

Hudson Valley Master Distiller David Nahmias and his wife Dorit hand-craft their award-winning spirits with the finest, natural ingredients. They are proudly the sole producers of Mahia in the United States.

Dorit —a former foreign-exchange trader and Master Distiller David, a former computer-software engineer, who was raised in the small Moroccan town of Taznakht. His parents, Joseph and Tamou, and grandparents Saada and Moshe, distilled Mahia, a unique Jewish alcoholic beverage; following the Jewish exodus from the region, his dad became legendary for being the last Jew to remain in Taznakht.


Westchester Tech Meetup is a community-based initiative dedicated to bringing together entrepreneurs, technologists, and creatives to explore product development and collaborative innovation projects in the Lower Hudson Valley region. Founders and startup teams live demo products and solutions, and receive direct feedback from participants to support their bootstrapping, sprints and growth.
