Penderyn is a Welsh whisky brand, the first commercially available whisky made in Wales since the 19th century. Produced by Penderyn Distillery (formerly known as the Welsh Whisky Company), Penderyn is a premium strength (46%) single malt whisky produced in several expressions. It is distilled in the village of Penderyn, Rhondda Cynon Taf, in the Cynon Valley, from which the brand takes its name.
The company was launched in 2000 as the Welsh Whisky Company. Whisky had been distilled in Wales for hundreds of years, but the industry was shut down in 1894. Penderyn became the first whisky to be manufactured in Wales for over a century when sales started in 2004. It remains the only whisky currently produced in the country.
Penderyn Distillery is situated in Brecon Beacons National Park and is considered the smallest distillery in the world. The company obtains its wash from Brains Brewery. The company opened up a visitors centre in June 2008, with Prince Charles, Prince of Wales leading the proceedings.
Penderyn Welsh Whisky is imported into the United States by the Sazerac Company, Inc.
