penderyn ex-ruby cask 12yr single malt
Distilling in Wales was a lost art...but in the late 1990s, in a pub in a small post-industrial Welsh valley town, a group of friends drank and chatted about establishing the first whisky distillery in Wales in over a century. They dreamt of creating a whisky as pure and precious as Welsh gold, represented today by Penderyn's `gold seam'.
The friends had a location in the historic village of Penderyn on the southern tip of the Brecon Beacons, chosen because of the site's own supply of fresh natural spring water. They also had a unique copper single-pot still designed by Dr David Faraday, a relative of the great 19th-century scientist Michael Faraday. Penderyn Whisky was launched on St David's Day 2004 in the presence of HRH Prince Charles.
This beautiful Single Cask US Exclusive offering from Penderyn was casked in ex-Bourbon in 2008 where it patiently waited 4 years to be transferred to an ex-Ruby Port cask. From there it gained it's livelyc haracter dreaming of all it would be when it emerged a little over 8 years later. Now with it's arrival to the US, it will find it's home in your glass than on your palate; pleasingly smooth and scrumptious.
