Established in 2005, Kavalan is Taiwan’s first whiskymaker and the nation’s only owned distillery. Kavalan, which means "flatland people," is named after the Taiwanese aboriginal ethnic group that originally inhabited modern-day Yilan County, where the distillery is located. Yilan was chosen for its proximity to the cold spring water of Snow Mountain and the salty Pacific Ocean air. The subtropical heat and high humidity of Yilan cause an accelerated maturation, ensuring a rich, complex whisky in just a few years. At Kavalan, it is referred to as "maturity redefined." Since its release in 2008, Kavalan has received dozens of international whisky awards and titles, beating out traditional Scottish, American and Japanese brands, and causing a seismic shift in the world of whisky and conversation about aging.

Matured in Spanish top quality oloroso sherry casks in special editions, Kavalan Sherry Single Cask Strength Whiskey is bottled by hand at the distillery, without any coloring, chill-filtration. It is a naturally smooth and rich whisky with a complex character. It is clean and complex with multi-layers of dried fruit, nuttiness and spices with some marzipan and vanilla touches to it as well. Each bottle is numbered, and if you are picking up, it is packaged in a gorgeous box.
