Secrets of a Subtropical Land
A SUBTROPICAL WHISKY
Kavalan distillery is a global whisky sensation, crafting luxurious single malts against the mountains of Yilan County, Taiwan. A pioneering force, this family-owned enterprise single-handedly created a nation’s whisky industry and a new “world” category in global competitions. Kavalan fans are smitten with the whisky’s irresistibly smooth texture and its exceptional depth of flavour, best summarised as the Kavalan trademark: combining the intense with the exquisite. All its signature characteristics are a product of the land it calls home, on the northeast coast of Taiwan. It relies on the mineral-rich meltwaters of Snow Mountain, slow-filtered through the volcanic earth, to make its pure, sweet new make spirit.
Kavalan first shot to fame starting in 2010 by winning a Times of London-organised blind tasting in honour of Robert Burns, followed in 2015 when it was named the World Whiskies Awards “World’s Best Single Malt,” less than 10 years after launching.
