An award-winning, Scotch-beating Taiwanese Whisky.

Kavalan was established in 2005 by Lee Tien-Tsai, who named the distillery after the indigenous people who originally inhabited the Kabalan Plain. A lot of experimentation and refinement went into the Spirit that aimed to represent sincerity and passion, and after four months, first drops trickled from Kavalan stills. After releasing their first bottling in 2008, they experimented some more and won in a blind tasting during the 2010 Burns Night, beating three Scotches and one English Whisky. Now, that’s something else!

Kavalan Concertmaster is a superb continuation of that enviable legacy. The coveted Taiwanese Whisky was matured in American oak before receiving a lush finish in Ruby Port, Tawny Port, and Vintage Port casks from Portugal. The fruity-vanilla nose and rich palate of Port, oak, and white pepper, earned Kavalan Concertmaster the ‘Best in Class’ title at the 2011 International Wine & Spirit Competition - not to mention a plethora of other accolades. Enjoy it with chocolate!

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
The distillery used hybrid stills until 2006, which were discontinuous stills, with pot stills on the bottom and a short column on top.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
The distillery has since been named by Whisky Magazine as the World Icons of Whisky "Whisky Visitor Attraction of the Year" for 2011, and its products have won several other awards.
The distillery receives 1 million visitors per year, 30% of which are foreign tourists.
