  • You have probably heard of "the angels' share, that part of the cask that is lost to evaporation each year. Unfortunately, in Taiwan the angels are very greedy, mainly due to Taiwan's warm climate...  more »

  • Getting to Yilan takes about an hour bus ride from Taipei. Than another 10 to 15 min taxi ride from the Yilan bus station. There are no fees and schedules for tours. You just go in the distillery and walk around in the still house and visitor's center. You can see and smell part of the barrel warehouse in the still house. You need to reserve and pay for the DIY blending though. The whole compound is picturesque as a whole. It's very modern looking compared to what people will see in Scotch distillery tours.
  • Self guided whiskey tours were nice but personally don’t like how impersonal the place is. It’s very commercial and not intimate. Feels like it can be way better in regards to the environment. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the free whiskey tasting and bought many bottles home as this place is the cheapest place where you can buy KaVaLan. Would come back again for sure for the whiskey experience!
