RELEASE: Kavalan returns to Whiskey Live Paris, presenting exclusive whiskeys for the French market

TAIPEI, Oct. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Taiwan's leading whiskey distillery is pleased to announce its continued presence at this year's Whiskey Live Paris (October 21-23), following its return in 2021 after a absence of a year due to the pandemic.

Guests will have the exclusive opportunity to taste whiskeys, specially selected for the demanding French market, at this year's stand:

Aurora Chang, regional director of Kavalan, expressed excitement about the resurgence of the French market amid the return of social gatherings and commercial activities.

"Throughout the pandemic, Kavalan strategically boosted sales with cocktail-friendly options like the Kavalan Distillery Select series. Additionally, premium cask-strength Solist whiskeys addressed supply challenges in the Japanese whiskey market. As As we approach the final stages of our third ripening warehouse, reflecting our dedication to quality and expansion, Kavalan is ready and optimistic to meet growing global demands."

This year, Kavalan's booth features a captivating centerpiece that embodies the brand's ethos, enhanced by vibrant pink orchids. A slatted wall, inspired by Taiwanese windows, combined with a lush green roof that reflects the natural beauty of Yilan County and complemented by exquisite carpentry, symbolize the quality of Kavalan oak barrels.

Didier Ghorbanzadeh, global ambassador for Kavalan's European distributor La Maison du Whiskey (LMDW), says Kavalan spares no effort in crafting a world-class single malt whiskey that is on par with the most renowned distilleries.

"When tasting Kavalan whiskeys for the first time, the surprising maturity, despite its youth, is attributed to the unique tropical aging conditions in Taiwan. This distinctive characteristic sets it apart from the single malt whiskeys we already distribute in Europe."

Didier noted that Europeans are baffled by the intensity, depth and vibrant fruit flavors found in Kavalan.

"While various oak influences (sherry, wine, etc.) are beautifully expressed with intense aromas, Kavalan is distinguished by its explosive tropical fruit flavors on the mid- and final palate, offering a refreshing purity to balance the oak influence" .

LMDW seeks to boost Kavalan's presence in the field by offering tastings and masterclasses at events such as Whiskey Live Paris, The Whiskey Show London and The Whiskey Show Budapest, showcasing Taiwan's unique whiskey to an expanding global audience.
