The Welsh Way of Gin.
Penderyn is the first Welsh distillery in over a century. It was launched on March 1, 2004, in the presence of HRH Prince Charles himself. The distillery is situated in Penderyn, a small village located in Brecon Beacons, a mountain range in South Wales. Bacon Beacons is known for being home to the forest Fawr Geopark, which surrounds Penderyn, and was recognised by UNESCO to exhibit geological heritage of great significance. Penderyn produce merely 1 barrel of Wysgi (Welsh for Whisky) per day. All of their malts are matured first in hand-selected Bourbon barrels, and then further in the barrels from which they are looking for the distinct expression. In the decade since the founding Penderyn has won critical acclaim from various competitions and people in the spirits business, and have built a following of thirsty Whisky-heads looking for that X-factor.
Brecon Gin is a fine quality distilled gin using botanicals from the four corners of the world and bottled at Penderyn Distillery using water from the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Brecon gin is a big traditional juniper gin laced with coriander and revealing hints of spicy cinnamon. Add a mixer and the citrus freshness of oranges and lemons appear with nutmeg, liquorice and angelica in a supporting role. Brecon gin will bring back memories of long hot summers past.
