Penderyn Celt 70cl 41°

Distillery : Penderyn / Country : Wales / Reference: : 22855

The Penderyn Celt is the new Single Malt of the distillery Penderyn, located in Wales, matured in former peated quarter casks (1/4 of the usual volume), it has  marked smoky and peated aromas as well as a lot of complexity in the mouth, with notes of spices and fresh fruits.

This spirit is presented in a beautiful case featuring the red dragon, that has been blazoned on the Royal Welsh Badge since 1953, with the motto "Y ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn" - "The Red Dragon inspires action". A fiery creature introduced to Wales by the Romans, the Dragon long remained a symbol of the Celtic King such as Henry Tudor, last King of England crowned on the battlefied in 1485, and now embodies all Welsh things.

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% and then processed by Master distiller Jim Swan into various expressions. 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 labeled bottles: this is Welsh whisky.”

Color: pale gold.

Nose: sweet aromas of peat and smoke, chocolate-flavoured and fruity notes (anana, golden apple).
