Wales may not have a national drink but they are definitely giving the Scots a run for their money with their whisky offering!
Penderyn is currently the only whisky made in Wales. The distillery produces award-winning single malt whiskies in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons in South Wales.
Their drinks are available in bars across the capital and whether you’re Welsh or not they’re well worth a try. Their range varies from sweet and smokey to smooth and fresh – and all easy to drink.
At the bar for Penderyn Madeira Finish (46%). This whisky is the original Penderyn ‘house style’. It’s light, fragrant, delicate, floral and sweet with a balanced oaky character.
For something a little different why not try Penderyn ‘That Try’ (41%). It commemorates one of the greatest rugby tries ever seen, by Gareth Edwards for the Barbarians against New Zealand on January 27 1973.
It’s a sweet and smoky whisky with mild aromas of peat smoke and gives pleasure from the very first sip.
