About the Distillery
Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwanâ€™s first whiskymaker and the nationâ€™s
only family-owned whisky distillery. Kavalan takes the old name of Yilan
county where the distillery is located in northeastern Taiwan.
The pure water and fresh air make this part of the subtropical island
the ideal environment for the production of whisky.
Kavalan Distillery is an entrepreneurâ€™s dream come true. Mr. Tien-Tsai Lee,
the founder of King Car conglomerate had long dreamed of producing a
Taiwanese whisky, yet it was not until 2002 when Taiwan joined the WTO that his goal could be achieved.
The distillery brings together a professional whisky R&D team with a
world-class master blender, Ian Chang, as well as the expertise of renowned whisky specialist, the late Dr. Jim Swan.
The team implements the highly specialized distilling and blending
skills that King Car Group has cultivated for more than 30 years through
beverage experience and knowledge.
