So it should come as no surprise that the distillery was established in 2005 and first Kavalan Whisky was launched already in 2008.

Taiwan is the third largest consumer of Single Malts in the world, right after the US and France.

“Kavalan” is the name of an ancient indigenous people that inhabited the Yilan province of Taiwan – speaking to the native character of the Whiskies.
