TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 27, 2017 /CNW/ -- Kavalan, Taiwan's premier whisky, has yet again claimed the most prestigious award in its category, this time at the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) announced on July 26.
Within two years, this makes it a total of three Trophies for the Kavalan Solist Ex-Bourbon Single Cask Strength, which was also awarded a Trophy at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) for the second consecutive year in early July.
The Kavalan CEO Mr YT Lee said the Ex-Bourbon had now been named the best World Wide whisky by two highly respected competitions.
"From the time we were pioneering whisky 10 years ago to now, quality has always been our priority because our mission is to produce a world-class whisky in Taiwan," Mr Lee said.
The Ex-Bourbon also scooped a Gold Outstanding and another four Kavalan whiskies were awarded IWSC Golds:
- Solist Moscatel Sherry Single Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky
- Solist Vinho Barrique Single Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky
- Kavalan Classic Single Malt Whisky
- Kavalan Distillery Reserve Single Malt Whisky (Peaty Cask)
As the pioneer of Taiwanese whisky, Kavalan has successively won the industry's highest awards. Its Solist Amontillado Sherry Single Cask Strength was named the "World's Best Single Cask Single Malt Whisky" in 2016 by the prestigious World Whiskies Awards (WWA) and its Solist Vinho Barrique won the 2015 "World's Best Single Malt Whisky."
