Penderyn Single Malt Whisky
Penderyn Single Malt Whisky has been successful in gaining protection in law as a Welsh product in the UK. PGI means Protected Geographical Indication and it is the 20th product from Wales to achieve GI accreditation, following in the footsteps of the protected designation of origin (PDO) for Welsh wine and the protected geographical indications (PGIs) for wine, cider and perry.
The Welsh whisky industry is growing in importance and is estimated to account for some £23 million of combined revenues this year. This is very impressive in an industry that had all but died out. Read more about the history of Welsh Whisky here. These days, you can visit the Penderyn Distillery in the tiny little village of Penderyn in the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon). They have also opened a site in Llandudno and the old copperworks in Swansea. Whichever one you choose the sites and buildings
