Medals Flow in From International Whisky Competition

Distillery of the Year, 3rd Best Single Malt, Top 15 Whiskies of 2021

Dubbed the “Olympics of whisky competitions,”the International Whisky Competition (IWC) has awarded Kavalan a host of tributes in 2021 including “Distillery of the Year.”

This year’s competition took place from May 12 to 16 in Colorado and judges said Kavalan scored the highest tribute because it had submitted “an impressive range of whisky expressions … demonstrating exceptional craftsmanship and passion in crafting whisky.”

In the competition’s Best Single Malt ranking across all countries and all categories, Kavalan placed 3rd with its Kavalan Artist Series: Paul Chiang Peated Malt Single Cask Strength Single Malt.

In the Top 15 Whiskies of 2021, four Kavalan expressions were recognised: Artist Series: Paul Chiang Peated Malt, King Car 40th Anniversary, Solist Vinho Barrique and Solist Oloroso Sherry, which was more than any other brand.

About IWC

The International Whisky Competition launched in 2010 with a mission to create a “true competition by offering only 3 medals per category, just like in the Olympics.”

According to the IWC: “unlike other competitions, since 2015, our judges are presented with one whisky at a time, to ensure each whisky gets the proper attention. In-depth notes are taken at every step for review ultimately to be compiled by the tasting panel committee … This unique process makes the International Whisky Competition one of the most professional competitions of its kind and the most followed whisky competition in the world.”
