King Car Conductor won one of 5 Kavalan Double Golds in San Francisco
TAIPEI, June 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Kavalan’s Double Gold award-winning King Car Conductor has unveiled a new packaging design.
King Car Conductor was one of five Kavalans to scoop Double Gold at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, making it the fourth SFWSC Double Gold awarded to this expression.
First launched in 2011, King Car Conductor is the first Kavalan whisky released that pays tribute to its parent company King Car Group. Matured and vatted from multiple oak barrels, this expression delivers delicate notes of papaya, banana, and green apple with rich and floral complexities. The label design presents “King Car Conductor” written in a semi-cursive Chinese calligraphic script in gold, paired with flowing lines referencing the Snow Mountain where Kavalan sources its mineral-rich meltwaters.
The 22nd SFWSC drew about 5,000 spirits from more than 40 countries, which were assessed by 70 judges, making it the biggest SFWSC contest so far.
