2015 Berry Bros. & Rudd Penderyn, Cask No. W20, Single Malt Whisky, Wales (59.9%)
About this SPIRIT
Nestled on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons, Penderyn Distillery lies at the heart of the Welsh whisky industry. This is a relatively youthful operation in whisky terms – in production since 2001 – but it is clear that there is a long future ahead of it.
With a borehole on site, the all-female distilling and blending team here use the pure water of the Brecons to produce their range of whiskies. Moreover, they are unique in their use of two Faraday stills – as opposed to the more traditional pot still. They also have a higher cut point than many other distillers. Both factors contribute to Penderyn’s light and floral signature style.
Penderyn’s core range has a variety of finishes. The house style is Madeira; Rich Oak, Peated, Port and Sherry wood finishes complete the set. The single-cask limited-edition bottlings are Penderyn’s secret weapon, specially chosen by the team.

Intense oak and spice on the nose is matched by lush fruit and an appealingly rich hue. The fruit undoubtedly brought forth by maturation in a cask that had previously been used to produce deliciously sweet Moscatel de Setúbal on the eponymous Portuguese peninsula. Notes of candied peel, toasted spice and apricot jam flesh out the palate. Enjoy this with a game of cards on a balmy evening, ideally in the wonderful Welsh valleys. As our friends at Penderyn might say - Iechyd da!
