Kavalan Launches in Sweden
Kavalan, Taiwan's premier whisky maker, has announced it is expanding to Sweden starting this month.
Kavalan CEO Mr YT Lee said the move reflected growth in international markets.
"We are seeing strong demand for Kavalan in markets such as France and the UK, and we look forward to building on that growth in Sweden with the help of Symposion, which is family-run like Kavalan itself," he said.
"We believe Swedish drinkers will like the four award-winning expressions in stores from this month: Distillery Select No. 1, Triple Sherry Cask, Podium and Solist Vinho Barrique."
The Sweden portfolio ranges from the signature Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique (57.8% ABV) - named World Whiskies Awards' 2015 Best Single Malt - to the distillery's latest new release, Triple Sherry Cask (40% ABV), a gorgeous amalgamation of Pedro Ximénez, Moscatel and Oloroso sherry-aged whiskies.
All Kavalan expressions are single malt whisky made from pure barley in its distillery in Yilan County, on the island of Taiwan.
