TAIPEI, June 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Kavalan has been named 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 and Kavalan previously won the title back in 2015 and 2018.
Kavalan also collected "Best Other Single Malt" for Kavalan's Solist Oloroso Sherry.
Mr Lee, CEO of Kavalan, said Kavalan 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.
