Water is very important in whisky making, so the water can have a big impact on the taste of the whisky. It took the founder of Kavalan Distillery a very long time to find the right place with the right water supply. Ilan became his destination. There is enough cold spring water that flows through the Snow Mountain. The first bottling of the Kavalan distillery, which combines the typical Kavalan flavours of tropical fruits with a pleasant peat note. Through the maturation in former Islay casks this balanced character is created.
