About Gin  and  Genever from Taiwan
A recent phenomenon in Taiwan has been the production of single malt whisky. Not just any single malt, mind you, but some that have been acclaimed as among the world's best. All this in just a few short years. The single malts from Taiwan are made in an intense, yet elegant style that emphasize strong and complex fruit and spice flavors from the distillate and especially the oak, were the tropical climate of the island has a huge influence and greatly accelerates maturation. While single malt whisky in Taiwan is a small industry at present, look for it to grow.

Clear color. Interesting, medicinal, herbal aromas of BBQ rub, smoked paprika, peach-mango chutney, and piney herb with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, stimulating, long candied lilacs, floral honey on cheese cracker, Meyer lemon and pomelo marmalades, and jasmine tea finish. An intriguing ride of savory, floral, and sweet aromas and flavors keeps this rather unique Gin top-of-mind for sipping or creative cocktail play.
