Kavalan Named Distillery of the Year At San Francisco World Spirits Competition For Third Time

|

Kavalan has been named the 2021 “Distillery of the Year” by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition (SFWSC), making it the third time the Taiwanese distiller from Yilan has collected this prestigious prize.

The Distillery of the Year distinction is conferred upon the spirits brand with the greatest number of points across the whole competition. Kavalan previously won the title in 2015 and 2018.

Kavalan also collected “Best Other Single Malt” for Kavalan’s Solist Oloroso Sherry. The distillery also beat its own record for the number of wins in San Francisco this year with 11 Double Golds and 6 Golds. Double Gold entries are considered “among the finest products in the world” and given when all judges unanimously award Gold. 

“We are always trying to improve on our flavour and quality and that’s why I’m grateful to have recognition of this from the judges in San Francisco,” said CEO Mr Lee. “We continue to work hard and it’s a big privilege to be named Distillery of the Year again.”
