Wales has a long history of alcohol production, with whisky being distilled in Wales since the Middle Ages. Welsh whisky manufacture declined and eventually died out during the nineteenth century. Revival attempts began in the 1990s which eventually led to the establishment of a new distillery, the first in over one hundred years. Set in the romantic, peaceful, and serene foothills of the magnificent Brecon Beacons, Penderyn Distillery, the only distillery in Wales, produces smooth, easy-drinking, award-winning single malt whiskies.
Wales has a long and proud heritage of producing whisky, and though the commercial manufacturing of Welsh whisky died out during the 19th century, a resurgence in the production of the spirit began during the 1990s.
This revival led to the establishment of what is now the only active distillery in Wales, the Penderyn Distillery, in the year 2000. Set against the backdrop of the iconic Brecon Beacons, Penderyn produces a fantastic selection of its own unique blends, with a deservedly stellar reputation for smooth, easy-drinking single malts.
