Kavalan Distillery was founded in 2005 on an idea of taking Scottish methods of making whisky and importing that expertise to Taiwan for a wholly-owned Taiwanese distillery. After a great deal of research investment, the fruits of their labour were finally brought to the world with the first spirit being produced in March of the following year.
The distillery is situated in the north-east of Taiwan in Yilan County which is incidentally where the brand name of Kavalan comes from; derived from the name of an early tribe from the region. The Kavalan range now has ten different expressions, including Classic Kavalan and Solist.
Kavalan Soloist is matured in hand selected American ex-Bourbon casks, the whisky is available at cask strength and non chill-filtered hence retains the fuller flavour of the natural single malt whisky. It has been awarded the Best Rest of the World Single Malt Whisky 2010 and International Spirits Challenge’s gold medal 2010 and, more recently, crowned the best single malt at the 2015 World Whiskies Awards.
