New Release in Icons of Wales Series

Penderyn Distillery will release the third in the series ‘Icons of Wales' towards the end of April 2014 which will be a new Single Malt, specially created to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the famed Welsh writer, poet and broadcaster ‘Dylan Thomas'.

Released to coincide with a busy programme of events around the world, this officially licenced edition celebrates Dylan's life and works.  It features original photography, illustrations and quotations that capture Dylan at his most creative and comes with a small specially designed notebook.

The whisky is matured in a combination of ex dry Oloroso Sherry casks and ex-bourbon casks and is bottled in 70cl and at 41% abv.

Tasting Notes - Dr Jim Swan
This Penderyn Sherrywood begins with the aroma of sugar bonbons rich with the smell of creamy toffee and vanilla.  Soon Penderyn's own fresh green apples and boiled berry fruits join in. In the mouth cream sherry flavours, obvious but not overt, mingle with delicate fruits reminiscent of white currants and honeydew melon.

This whisky, delightful as an aperitif, has a medium long finish that ends up with an attractive aftertaste of mixed fruits. Dinner beckons!

To register your interest in purchasing this product please email  You will be notified when the product is ready for release and the price will be confirmed at that time.
