Collection Taiwan - New player in the whiskey world

Taiwanese whiskey doesn't have a long history, but it has gained significant popularity in recent years.

When Taiwan joined the World Trade Organization in 2002, its economic laws enabled the opening of Kavalan , the country's first non-governmental distillery.

By combining a fruity spirit with different cask types and using a rapid maturation process favored by Taiwan's tropical climate (Kavalan is located in the hot, humid Northeast), Kavalan has produced a surprisingly smooth spirit with a flavor reminiscent of bourbon reminded of milk chocolate. In 2012 Kavalan Solist Fino Sherry Cask was named New World Whiskey of the Year by Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible.

Taiwan's other distillery, Nantou , is state-owned.

Few countries have achieved the fame that Taiwanese whiskey enjoys today, and none in such a short time.
