TAIPEI, July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Kavalan has beaten the competition to claim the title of "Best Asian Distillery" at 2023 Tokyo Whiskey

The organizers stated that the new prize was established as a stand-alone award to better showcase the development and potential of the region, excluding Japan.

YT Lee, CEO of Kavalan, explained that he was most proud that Solist PX Sherry Cask won the coveted "Best Single Malt Whisky" of 2023.

"I'm told there were 183 single malts in the spirits category of this year's contest, so I'm very honored that the judges in Tokyo thought our PX Sherry was the best," said YT Lee.

Kavalan also won the 2023 Best Cost Performance Asian Whiskey award for Distillery Select No.2. and three top golds for their Solist PX Sherry, Distillery Reserve Peated Malt and Solist Oloroso Sherry. The entire Solist range is bottled in barrels.
