About Penderyn

We’re located in the perfect spot in the old village of Penderyn, nestled in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, and there we have created the best little distillery in Wales. And the smoothest whisky on earth.

About Penderyn

Introducing Our Brands

In 2007, Penderyn Distillery introduced three further brands: Brecon Five Vodka, Brecon Gin and Merlyn Cream Liqueur. Like Penderyn Single Malt Whisky all three have won international recognition and are gaining an excellent reputation in the UK and abroad as premium spirits.

The Brecon Beacons National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty famed for its breathtaking scenery, open moorland, clear rivers and tumultuous waterfalls.
Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky was first launched on St David’s Day, 1st March 2004, in the presence of HRH Prince Charles, to huge critical acclaim from both acknowledged whisky experts and  consumers. Indeed, Penderyn has already won a number of prestigious international awards for the quality and taste of the whisky and for its distinctive and stylish packaging.

Myth and folklore surround us

The Arthurian legend is alive and well, with two peaks of the Brecon Beacons together known as ‘Arthur’s Seat’. Another story, ‘The Shepherd of Myddfai’, tells how a young shepherd won and lost a fairy bride from Llyn y Fan Fach, the fairy lake of the Brecon Beacons.

UNESCO has recognised the region’s importance. The Fforest Fawr Geopark, which lies within the Brecon Beacons and surrounds Penderyn, is one of less than a hundred Geoparks worldwide to exhibit "geological heritage of great significance”.
