Kavalan Whisky 326, Section 2. Yuan-Shan Rd., Yuan-Shan. Tours daily. Free.
Tours of this family-owned single-malt whisky distillery begin outside on the lawn of the spacious campus with a viewing of a fiery show presented by coopers refreshing oak barrels. Inside, a variety of displays enlighten visitors, who also have a chance to view the gigantic copper stills. The tour concludes with a tasting of several whiskeys. My favorite was the fruity, light, and silky-smooth classic signature whiskey, which stings the tongue and then tingles all the way down. I purchased a packable small amount in a cute lab-bottle flask to bring home.
