When will Kavalan Whisky be available to the rest of the world?

After Kavalan's world wide accolades, demand for Taiwan's very first Whisky has exceeded expectations. And whilst Kavalan's whisky is available in Taiwan, across the island's duty-free shops and on certain airlines, it is not readily available overseas. Kavalan whisky is young. And only the first of Kavalan's single malt whisky has reached full maturity. Three year maturity is required before a whisky can be shipped overseas. So visit us regularly to find out where and when Kavalan whisky will reach your shores. Kavalan's single malt Concerto Port Cask finish, single malt Solist Ex-Boubon cask and single malt Solist Sherry cask whiskies will be available soon!

Can Kavalan compete with Pure Scotch whisky from Scotland?

For the past six months, Kavalan has been winning whisky lovers the world over. It all started when Kavalan made it into Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2010, awarding the spirit with a Gold Award. But the world really took notice of Kavalan when it beat a trio of Scottish Blends during a blind tasting event organised by The Times at the famous Burns Night. Soon after this, Kavalan won a top award at the WWA awards in London.
So, does this mean that the Kavalan Whisky is as good or better than some of Scotland's purest Scotch whiskies? Absolutely not. A Scotch whisky comes from years of tradition, care and craftmanship. Kavalan is a relatively young whisky. However, Kavalan is undoubtedly a great whisky in its own right. It has certainly proved a number of times that it is on the right track.
Shrugging off the 'Made in Taiwan' stigma and convince sceptics that Kavalan is a truly exceptional whisky has nevertheless been a challenge. Yet, the brand is showing that it is a unique whisky with its very own rich flavours, aromas and colours. It has put Taiwan firmly on the very exclusive handful of nations who make up the world's Whisky map!

WWA awards in London !

It seems that there is no end to KAVALAN Whisky's accolades.
It has just won another top award at the WWA Awards in London!

Nobody believed it. (01/2010)

Nobody believed it, but we always have.
Kavalan, the first whisky ever produced in Taiwan, beats a trio of top Scottish blends at the famous Burns Night in a blind test organised by the Times and held by whisky experts! An amazing achievement from a Taiwanese brand which few believed in. Are we finally witnessing a paradigm shift away from the old "Made in Taiwan" stigma?
