Penderyn Distillery is the only distillery in Wales and one of the smallest distilleries in the world. One of the few remaining independent distilleries, Penderyn takes its name from the old Welsh village in which it is located and nestles in the foothills of the ancient Brecon Beacons mountain range. The Brecon Beacons National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty famed for its breathtaking scenery, open moorland, clear rivers and tumultuous waterfalls.
We produce the finest malted barley spirit, which, when matured, is recognised worldwide as one of the highly recommended malt whiskies.
Members of the public can enjoy a distillery tour, take a journey through the history of single malt whisky making in Wales, and understand the distilling process at first hand.
On arrival you will be greeted by your tour guide and taken through to the Exhibition Area, where you can browse at your leisure and learn for yourself the history of whisky making in Wales as well as more general Welsh history. There is also a short film about how Penderyn Distillery first started, and how it has developed since its launch in 2004.
Your guide will then join you and take you through to the viewing area where you will be able to view our Grist Mill, Mash Tun and Fermenters that produce our very own malted barley wash. You will be able to view our Penderyn Single Pot Stills that were designed by Dr. David Faraday, a descendant of famous physicist Sir Michael Faraday. When this distillation is in process you will be able to see the spirit being drawn into the spirit safe at a massive 92%abv. Also on show will be our more traditional Double Pot Still, which produces a different style of Penderyn spirit. Our guide will then describe how the different expressions of Penderyn Whisky are matured, through the various stages and different barrels used during this maturation process. You will also learn about our other products - Merlyn Cream Liqueur, FIVE Vodka and Brecon Gin.
After the tour, you will visit our tasting bar where you are entitled to taste two of our products.
You will then be taken to the Visitor Centre Shop for an opportunity to browse at your leisure.
