Penderyn Madeira 46% abv
'Welsh Gold is extremely rare, pure and precious and was worn by legendary Welsh princes.'
The 'Gold' range consists of Peated, Sherrywood and Portwood whiskies and this Madeira-finish whisky which is the original Penderyn ‘house style’. This single malt Welsh whisky is aged in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in ex-Madeira wine casks to bring out its full gold character. It is bottled at 46% abv.
Our Unique Still
‘A still like no other…’
Our whisky still is a single copper-pot which produces a flavourful spirit of extraordinary strength and purity and was designed by Dr David Faraday, descendent of the ground-breaking Victorian scientist, Michael Faraday. As of 2013 we have a pair of these stills.
Whilst most Scottish and Irish distilleries use a conventional two or three-pot still system, the technology developed at Penderyn allows an extremely clean ‘flavourful’ spirit to be produced from a single still.
However, in 2014 we commissioned a pair of Scottish-style ‘lantern’ stills which allow us to experiment with new whiskies.

‘Distilling in Wales was a lost art…’
…but in the late 1990s, in a pub in a small post-industrial Welsh valley town, a group of friends drank and chatted about establishing the first whisky distillery in Wales in over a century. They dreamt of creating a whisky as pure and precious as Welsh gold, represented today by Penderyn’s ‘gold seam’.
The friends had a location in the historic village of Penderyn on the southern tip of the Brecon Beacons, chosen because of the site’s own supply of fresh natural spring water. They also had a unique copper single-pot still designed by Dr David Faraday, a relative of the great 19th-century scientist Michael Faraday. Penderyn Whisky was launched on St David’s Day 2004 in the presence of HRH Prince Charles.
At Penderyn we produce our own malted barley spirit which, when matured, is recognised worldwide as one of the finest single malt whiskies. The majority of our spirit goes into casks for ageing in our cellars. The remainder is used to craft other award-winning products. With investment, inspiration, hard work, attention to detail, the finest barley, expert distillers and the best American oak bourbon casks, Penderyn Whisky has quickly gained a worldwide reputation winning several awards en route and we have recently found new markets in countries such as China, Russia and Australia.
‘A lost art no more.’

So what is it like? It is deceptively smooth on the palate, and is certainly worthy of a place alongside the Scotch and Irish variants. It has a smoky finish following a sweet and warming opening, and for me was a little reminiscent of William Lawson's blended scotch. It is quite light; the taste is not as intense as an aged whisky, which would be in keeping with the younger whisky style to which Penderyn belongs.
Would I buy it again? Yes. Is it up there with the likes of Highland Park or Lapraiogh? Not at this time, but vive la difference, I reckon.
