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.

Ten thousand years ago the last ice age ended. The ice floes covering Northern Europe stopped where Penderyn Distillery lies today before retreating back to the Arctic. Here we produce just one cask per day of the finest malted barley spirit, which, when matured, is recognised worldwide as one of the finest 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 and bottling process at first hand.
