Penderyn Whisky Distillery

The tiny village of Penderyn, in the very north of Rhondda Cynon Taf is home to a very big surprise.

The pure water that flows from the mountains does not just create the spectacular nearby waterfalls, but is also used to blend one of the best whiskies in the world.

Penderyn Whisky Distillery was the first of its kind in Wales and opened by royalty.

Now guests can enjoy a fascinating and unique tour behind the scenes, to see how the coveted blend is made.

See the mill, the mash turn and the process that makes Penderyn such an award-winner, holding its own against the Irish and Scottish giants.

At the end of the tour, taste for yourself to see why Penderyn is served in bars, lounges and parties across the globe – from New York to Singapore!

Penderyn always keeps it local, proudly flying the flag for Wales.

Its drinks were served at a reception to welcome Wales to the Qatar World Cup and former Wales captain Gareth Bale is a patron.

You can also pick up the perfect gift for yourself, or a loved one, in the gift shop and see the other range of drinks produced by Penderyn, including gin, vodka and cream liquor.
