Taipei (Taiwan News) — As many head into Yilan, less than two hours away from Taipei by bus, they seek out the coast and hot springs in nearby towns. Just outside the city of about 100,000 in Yuanshan Township, however, is Taiwan’s premier whisky distillery—Kavalan Whisky, owned by King Car Group, which offers visitors a free tour and a sample of its classic single malt whisky. Guided Mandarin tours are available every hour, while English tours require an online reservation.

The Kavalan distillery has become more popular since 2010 when it won its first international awards, the more prominent of which was the gold medal for its Solist Sherry Single Cask Strength single malt at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The same organization awarded Kavalan Distillery of the Year in 2015. The company has since won more awards for its Solist series of whiskies.

Although it prides itself on the Solist series, its classic single malt is still its best seller as it’s more affordable for most consumers. The classic single malt was first released in April 2008 as the distillery was opened to the public.    [FULL  STORY]
