The Kavalan Distillery in Taiwan was founded in 2005 by T.T. Lee, president of the Taiwanese food conglomerate King Car Group. His greatest wish was to open his own whisky distillery in Taiwan. Kavalan is the name of the Yilan region, which lies southeast of the capital Taipei. An important reason for choosing this location is the excellent water quality. In Yilan, there is enough cold spring water flowing through Snow Mountain. This bottling was created especially for the 40th anniversary of King Car Group, one of Taiwan's largest food producers and owner of Kavalan Distillery. It is a limited edition from exclusive red wine barrels that elegantly combines creamy toffee flavors with intense dark fruit sweetness. Limited to 10,000 bottles worldwide.
