Kavalan might not be a household name yet, but quite a success story hides behind its name – as well as whiskies with fruity, mild taste and a special character. The brand name Kavalan refers to the traditional title of the Yilan province and its indigenous inhabitants. The Kavalan founder Tian-Tsai Lee, president of the Taiwanese food giant King Car Group, chose this place about a one-hour drive from Taiwan’s capital Taipeh for his new business, due to the region’s many natural springs with  outstanding water quality.
