Penderyn produce award-winning single malt whiskies and spirits at their distillery on the foothills of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales, UK. Distilling in Wales was a lost art, but in the late 1990s, in a pub in Hirwaun in the Welsh valleys, a group of friends chatted about establishing the first whisky distillery in Wales in over a century. The village of Penderyn was chosen because of the site’s own supply of fresh spring water. A unique copper single-pot still designed by Dr David Faraday, a relative of the great 19th-century scientist Michael Faraday, was installed, which produces a spirit at an industry high of 92%. On St David’s Day 2004 Penderyn whisky was launched in the presence of HRH Prince Charles and new distilleries are planned for Llandudno and Swansea. Penderyn is now available in over 40 countries around the globe.
