KAVALAN WHISKY TASTING – WEDNESDAY 3RD MAY at Arkwrights – Taiwan Whisky News



We hosted our first whisky tasting on 21st April 2007  and over the years we have enjoyed some memorable evenings with various characters from the whisky industry who have educated and entertained us.  As we celebrate 10 years of tastings we would like to say a huge thanks to all these people, and to all our suppliers who have supported us so well, and also to all of you, our wonderful customers, who have come along and helped to make the evenings such a success.

On Wednesday 3rd May we are delighted to start off this anniversary year by welcoming along for the first time Kavalan Distillery from Taiwan, a distillery who in 2007 had only been established for a couple of years and who have, in the years since, built a strong reputation worldwide.  They were the first to produce whisky in Taiwan, and their success story started when the dream of King Car founder, Mr Tien-Tsai Lee, was brought to reality with the help of Ian Chang, Master Blender, and Dr Jim Swan, whisky consultant.

The combination of quality new make spirit and hot Taiwanese summers, that speed maturation, results in a whisky that has its own distinctive character.  It is fruity, smooth, mellow and creamy but with different twists, dependent on the type of maturation cask.  The tasting will not only give you the opportunity to sample a range of diverse whiskies from the range, but also to hear direct from the Master Blender himself, Ian Chang, just how Kavalan’s multi award winning whisky is made and the story behind it.  As Ian won the title of Master Distiller of the Year in 2015 and World Whisky Brand Ambassador of the Year in 2017 then this promises to be a very interesting evening.

Tickets are £15 per person and will be available to buy online from 1.30pm on Friday 31st March.  Please note, no bookings will be taken before this time and because of the high demand for these tickets the maximum number per booking is 6.

Tickets for these event always go very quickly so make sure you go online to book yours as soon as they are released.  If you do miss out then please contact us to register your interest and we will add you to the reserves list for any returned tickets.
