Penderyn Madeira 70cl 46°
Produced by the unique distillery of Wales in the United Kingdom, Penderyn Madeira is a Welsh whisky that firstly aged in Evan Williams Bourbon barrels and has been finished in Madeira wine casks for added complexity and richness.
Three times awarded a gold medal at International Whisky Competition 2012, 2013 and 2014, this Single Malt Penderyn Madeira whisky merits special attention. It reveals a typical vanilla fruitiness hallmark of the Welsh distillery, to which the Madeira wine has brought richness and balance for a perfect tasting sensation.
|Maturation||Bourbon & Madeira Wine|
Established in 2000, Penderyn is the first Welsh distillery to resume whiskey production, as the last one closed its doors in 1903. Whisky produced in Whales is called Welsh whisky.
Produced in the village of the same name, located near Brecon Beacons National Park, Penderyn Single Malt has been richly matured and is available with various finishes. The whisky is mainly in Evan Williams bourbon casks, a nod to the Welsh distillers who founded the American distillery. Then, the whisky is either finished in Madeira wine casks, imparting toffee and honey flavours, Port wine casks, for the red fruit aromas, Sherry casks or ex-Islay malt casks for their peaty taste…
Distilled in Faraday stills, a three-storey copper still with long column connected to a higher column by a pipe system, the Penderyn distillate is collected at 92%. A couple of traditional Pot Stills has also been installed in the distillery in 2014.
For Giancarlo Bianchi, the distillery’s technical director, “a non-age whisky distilled in unique stills in Whales, a craft production involving everything up to the 150.00 hand labelled bottles: this is Welsh whisky.”
