Penderyn Peated Finished Single Malt Whisky

Penderyn PeatedPenderyn Peated in an alluring and unusual expression of an award-winning single malt whisky, produced each year as a limited bottling.

The hillside village of Penderyn, southern gateway to the wild, beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, gives its name to this unique Welsh single malt whisky, made here at the only distillery in Wales.

One of a very few distilleries in private hands today, Penderyn continues a treasured tradition; in the 18th century an early Welsh distiller was among the founding fathers of bourbon distilling in America.

Each day here we ‘charge’ our unique copper still with a specially fermented single variety malted barley wash. The day’s distillation yields a single barrel of pure single malt spirit, which is married with spring water from our own source, then matured in selected first quality oak barrels.

Unique distillation and careful maturation create a single malt whisky, in which a sweet, elegant Penderyn house style shines through. Even then, there’s more to do. To attain their full depth and complexity of flavour, different hand-crafted expressions of Penderyn are aged or finished in different woods.

The Penderyn Peated in this bottle has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels and ex-peated Scotch whisky casks to bring out its appealing character. At a generous 46% ABV, it introduces itself with sweet, aromatic smoke. Under this there are signature notes of vanilla, green apples and refreshing citrus. An array of gentle flavours tempts even the most sophisticated palate, while smoke and vanilla linger on the attractive medium length finish.

Like the fabled Welsh Gold (in Welsh, Aur Cymru) used to make heirloom jewellery proudly worn by kings and princes down the ages, Penderyn single malt is rare and highly prized. To those who love it, it’s a new kind of Welsh Gold.
