Penderyn Single Malt Whisky was launched on 1 March 2004, a date which signalled the return of whisky distillation to Wales after an absence of more than 100 years. The distillery was officially opened by HRH, Prince Charles.

Penderyn is made at the Penderyn Distillery which is located on the southern reaches of the Brecon Beacons.

The whisky is distilled in a specially-commissioned unique whisky still producing a flavourful spirit at 92% abv which is married with fresh spring water drawn from directly beneath the distillery.

Pure water source is replenished by rain water that flows through the soil and filters through to near-surface rocks within the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The spirit is then matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in rare Madeira barriques to produce our house-style Madeira-finish whisky that, even at 46% ABV, is light and fresh in style.

This independently-owned distillery employs a dedicated team of craftsmen and professionals who produce whiskies and other spirits which are distributed world-wide.

The Red Dragon is the national flag of Wales and the Royal Welsh badge bears the motto, ‘Y ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn’, which translates as ‘The red dragon inspires action.’ It features in ancient Welsh tales and was the battle standard of legendary Welsh princes. Welshman Henry Tudor took the flag to Bosworth, where, in 1485, he became the last king of England to be crowned on the battlefield.
