Located in the perfectly old village of Penderyn, nestled in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons, is where you will find the best little distillery in Wales.
The doors opened in 2004 on St Patrick’s day and welcomed His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales to launch the opening.
Penderyn became the first whisky to be manufactured in Wales for over a century when sales started and it remains the only whisky currently produced in the country. The Distillery have won international recognition and huge number of awards around the globe.

Smoke and fire curtains were pleased to be awarded the contract to design, install the active fire curtains protection barriers for the Welsh Penderyn Distillery.
With an innovative design Smoke and Fire Curtains Ltd had to provide 2-hour fire protection surrounding the perimeters.
The requirement at Penderyn was to install fire curtains controlled via a fusible link system, which was specifically placed locally to the active barrier and designed to only descend to its fire position at certain temperatures to prevent false activation.
