The Icons of Wales series consists of special bottlings, each one celebrating a person, milestone or event from Welsh history with international significance. The distillery plans to release fifty editions in total, each one strictly limited in number and containing Penderyn's award-winning Welsh spirit.
The series seeks to celebrate the finest moments from Welsh history which showcase independence, innovation and individuality, raising the profile of these moments both in Wales and abroad.
The first edition is Penderyn Red Flag
, commemorating the first time that a red flag was raised as a symbol of social protest: during the 1831 Merthyr Rising which ended in the execution of miner Dic Penderyn.
The second ‘Icon of Wales' is called Penderyn Independence
, and commemorates the signing of the American Declaration of Independence in 1776.
