On 14th September 2000, history was made when the first distillation was carried out at The Welsh Whisky Company's Penderyn Distillery, in the picturesque Brecon Beacons National Park. Penderyn Single Malt Whisky was later launched on St David's Day, 1st March 2004, to huge critical acclaim from both acknowledged whisky experts and 'ordinary' consumers. Noted Whisky writer, Jim Murray, had the privilege of been the first person outside the company to analyse the new product at the official launch commenting, “I told them they were tasting not just an historic malt whisky, but one that deserved the highest praise in its own right.”
The Welsh Whisky Company uses a unique design of still for its malt whisky distillation. The still consists of a single 'pot' beneath a tall rectifying column and was developed by a team led by Dr David Faraday (a descendant of Sir Michael Faraday, discoverer of the electrolytic cell). Whilst the Scottish distilleries generally use two conventional stills for their production, and the Irish three, the technology developed at Penderyn enables an extremely 'clean' and flavourful spirit to be produced from the single still. The design is also extremely energy efficient. Malted barley wash to Welsh Whisky's specification is obtained from the well-known Welsh regional brewer, S A Brain & Co. The still is currently charged once or twice each day and spirit is drawn off at over 91% alcohol. The majority of the whisky spirit is matured using casks sourced from the American bourbon industry (mostly Jack Daniel's, Evan Williams and Buffalo Trace).
This whisky was matured in a combination of bourbon barrels and dry Oloroso sherry casks. Bottled at 46% without chill filtration.

Other reviews... [Jan 2011 bottling] Sophisticated hardly covers it...more moody swings between salty dry and vaguely sweet...drier than the lips of Welsh Male Voice Choir singing in the Sahara. But a whole lot more harmonious. 94 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2013size>
