Penderyn Icons of Wales Series

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.
The third in the Icons series, Dylan,  is a Single Malt specially created to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the famed Welsh writer, poet and broadcaster Dylan Thomas.  This edition was awarded Silver in the Worldwide Whisky No Age Statement category at the 2014 International Wines & Spirit competition.

New Release

The fourth in the series That Try was awarded Silver at the Whiskies of the World Masters 2015.  That Try recounts the highlights of the match that took place on 27th January 1973 in a packed Cardiff Arms Park, when the All Blacks’ wing Bryan Williams kicked a high ball into the Barbarians twenty-two, little did he think that less than thirty astonishing seconds later the Baa-Baas would score the greatest try ever seen.
