What's included in the Penderyn Distillery tour?

  • An hour-long Distillery tour to learn about the founding of Penderyn

  • See the exhibition area, mill, mash tun, innovative single copper pot stills (unique to Penderyn) and the latest addition – a pair of pot stills. You may not know what any of this means right now, but you will by the time you finish the tour!
  • And perhaps the best bit... enjoy a couple of tasters in the Tasting Bar afterwards

Why we love Penderyn Distillery

  • The whole experience is so wonderfully Welsh. From their brand story and values to even the materials used to build the distillery, everything stems from the Welsh culture and the original vision:

    'They dreamt of creating a whisky as pure and precious as Welsh gold'

  • Tours last for an hour and run every hour from 10am-4pm meaning it's easy to find a time that best suits you

  • Penderyn Distillery is the ideal rainy-day attraction in Wales. Perfect if you're local to South Wales and looking for things to do nearby when the Welsh weather decides to throw a tantrum, or if you're visiting the Brecon Beacons National Park and get caught in the rain. What better way to shelter from the elements than with a fantastic tot of some Penderyn whisky to warm you up...
