In ancient times, the land around I-Lan in Taiwan was called Kavalan, a mysterious land that was solely inhabited by the indigenous people of the Kavalan clan. The name was officially recognized by the Emperor of the Chin dynasty in the year of 1809 when the original city was also built under the same name.
Kavalan had always been kept primitive and pritected from the outside world by the Syue-shan mountain range which is abundant in high quality natural water that comes from deep within the mountain range. The mists of Kavalan and the spirits of the past have been created for you in this exquisite whisky.
Kavalan distillery has always strived to use the best quality produce and casks to produce their spirit under the guidance of Master Blender Dr. Ian Chang. Time and time again this approach to spirit has provided Kavalan distillery with many accolades, including “worlds best single malt” at the World Whisky Awards in 2015.
