A great place to start or finish your Welsh adventure, located just over half an hour away from Abergavenny in the village of Penderyn, at the base of the Brecon Beacons National Park you will find Penderyn Distillery. Here you can sample and learn about their award winning single malt whiskies and spirits…..they have just won ‘The Spirits Business Rum and Cachaca Masters for two of their Siddiqui Rums’!
This is a great place to visit if you want to learn about the distillery process, see inside a working distillery and enjoy sampling a few of their whiskies and rums. They offer a range of tours from their; Distillery Tour, Whisky & Chocolate Tours, Masterclass Tour, and their Evening & Corporate Tours. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we advise that you contact them to book in advance and make sure the tour you hope to do is running on your chosen day.
Whilst in Penderyn, if you enjoy walking and fancy spending the day here, you may have time to enjoy a walk along the ‘Penderyn Mineral Line’. This walk stretches from Penderyn to neighbouring Hirwaun and follows an old tramline. Make sure you keep a look out for historical industrial origins which can be seen along the way, and if you’re interested in history you can listen to the audio trial which tells stories of the ghost of William Bryant who was once a worker at Hirwaun Ironworks. Simply pair your phone to the Hirwaun Audio Trail and listen along.
