Yilan Distillery宜蘭酒廠(甲子蘭酒文物館)


Long ago Yilan was also known as Chiachilan, Gemalan, and Kapalan, so when the Yilan Distillery opened to tourists in 1998, its Wine Museum was called Chiachilan. Created in 1909, the distillery is the oldest in Taiwan, with its focus mostly on red rice wine.

Red rice wine has won silver awards in a worldwide competition. It’s a very nutritious type of alcohol made mainly of red yeast rice. In the museum, visitors can buy red rice sausages, red rice cake, red yeast rice vinegar, red yeast rice sauce, red rice wine black dates, red rice wine longan cake ice bar and other red yeast rice products unique to Yilan.
