Kavalan awarded “Gold Outstanding” at 2018 International Wine & Spirit Competition

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Aug. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Kavalan, Taiwan’s leading whisky distillery, has received three Gold/Gold Outstandings at the 2018 International Wine and Spirit Competition, regarded as the most competitive Whisky and Wine contest.

Kavalan CEO Mr YT Lee said the “Kavalan Oloroso Sherry Oak” aged in the finest Spanish Oloroso Sherry casks had received the highest grade possible — Gold Outstanding. He also said it’s clean and complex with multiple layers of dried fruit, nuttiness and spices with some marzipan and vanilla touches to it.

“In Yilan County where our distillery is based, we draw on the purest water, a unique subtropical climate and the dedication and passion of Kavalan team to produce the highest quality whisky,” Mr Lee said.

The “Kavalan Distillery Reserve Peaty Cask,” and the “Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon Single Cask,” aged in the highest quality Bourbon barrels were also the Gold medal winners this year.

In other major awards contests this year, Kavalan was awarded the SFWSC’s 2018 “Distillery of the Year” title, building on its biggest ever haul of medals in San Francisco, including a “Best in Class” trophy and a record of 9 “Double Golds.” Last but not least, Kavalan Chairman Mr Tien Tsai Lee and CEO Mr Yu-Ting Lee are the first in all Mandarin-speaking countries and first father and son to be inducted into the World Whiskies Awards (WWA) “Hall of Fame” in London this March.
