It’s been named one of the top 5 best-selling and top-trending world whiskies in 2018 by the world’s top bars. Needless to say, we are extremely excited to have Kavalan back at the Whisky & Spirits Live Festival this year. Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwan’s first whiskymaker and the nation’s only family-owned whisky distillery. Kavalan takes the old name of Yilan county where the distillery is located in northeastern Taiwan. The pure water and fresh air make this part of the subtropical island the ideal environment for the production of whisky.
Taiwan's first whisky distillery has been pioneering the art of single malt whisky since 2006. Kavalan is produced in a sub tropical climate and is therefore aged in intense humidity and heat yet benefits from sea and mountain breezes and the spring water from Snow Mountain, which combine to create Kavalan's signature creaminess. The distillery takes its name from the indigenous name for Yilan County, where it is based, and is backed by 30 years of beverage-making under parent company, King Car Group.
To date, Kavalan has collected more than 250 gold awards including 8 times world whisky winner and 4 times Spirits Producers of the Year and is available in 68 countries. As the pioneer of Taiwanese whisky, Kavalan has successively won the industry’s highest awards. Whats Coming - Whisky ‘X’ Kavalan’s exciting new 2018 release and the first global launch in two years.
