Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky - Portwood

"From Wales to the world..." - Penderyn Distillery

The Penderyn distillery is located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons (a National Park in Wales, UK). It was launched on St David's Day in 2004 (the patron saint of Wales), in the presence of King Charles III (then HRH Prince Charles, who was the Prince of Wales). 

The location was chosen due to a fresh natural spring located in the Village. They also use a unique copper single-pot still, which was designed by Dr David Faraday (a relative of the famous 19th Century Scientist). This was installed in 2000 and produces a spirit at 92%, which is an industry high. Penderyn state this is one of the reasons that their whiskies are light, fruity and full of flavour. As if this wasn't enough to ensure a world-class product, they hired Dr Jum Swan, a Scottish Whisky expert as their Master Distiller.

Things have gone from strength to strength since their launch, and they have won over 100 Double Gold / Gold / Masters awards, and is available in over 50 countries the world over, including the key markets for whisky of France, Germany, the USA and China. 

For their Gold range, in which their Portwood edition sits, Penderyn have taken inspiration from Welsh Gold. Extremely rare, pure and precious it was worn by the legendary Welsh princes of old.

Enjoyed all over the world, their Portwood edition is especially popular in France. As can be expected from its name, this whisky is initially matured in ex-bourbon casks before achieving its perfect finish in Portwood casks.

The nose brings intense aromas from rich dried fruits, dark chocolate and cranberries. A little nuttiness and oak spice also comes through.

The palate is also rich, with a creaminess which brings honey and spices, as well as more fruit flavours and a warmth. The finish is delicately sweet, with rich wood and chocolate notes - with the dried fruits remaining through to the end.

Perfect Serve

We particularly liked this at room temperature with a splash of water, but as with all good whiskies, enjoy as you want to!
