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.”

Nose: fruity and balanced, light woody notes, sweet on caramelized apples, orange peel, vanilla and raisins with a hint of lime.

Palate: elegant and delicate, on honeyed fruits and spices (vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg).

Finish: soft and sweet, notes of honey and vanilla, malty finish.
