Despite only launching their first whiskies in the early 2000s, Taiwan's hottest export - Kavalan - have already collected some of the industry's most notable awards including 'World’s Best Single Malt' and 'World’s Best Single Cask Single Malt' from the World Whiskies Awards as well as 'Distiller of the Year' from the International Wine and Spirit Competition.
Because we're yet to sample the Kavalan goods, we decided to team up with their Australian distributor The Spirits Company to host a one night only Kavalan Whisky tasting at Boss Hunting HQ in Sydney on August 29.
We're strictly limited to just 40 spots so if you're keen to join us hit the form below. If you want to come along with a mate, you'll both need to fill out the form. The first 40 emails we have will be contacted with the event details next week.
And in the meantime, to get your mouth watering, here's the list of the Kavalan expressions we'll be tasting on the night.
Kavalan Distillery Select (40% - $99.00)
Kavalan Podium (46% - $170.00)
Kavalan ex-Bourbon Cask (46% - $199.00)
