The Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Charles visited South Wales today and Penderyn were invited to meet him at the Patti Pavilion in Swansea. Penderyn has a history with Prince Charles as he was at the launch of our whisky in St David’s Day 2004, and also opened our Visitor Centre in 2008.
The Prince spotted the Penderyn stand and said, ‘Ah, Penderyn!’ as he approached, shaking hands with the Sian Whitelock, our Brand Director and Mia Evans, our Brand Ambassador.
The Prince reported that he’d been to Penderyn before, and Sian and Mia showed him the recently released Royal Welsh Whisky Icons of Wales Edition and explained its royal background. Prince Charles gratefully accepted a bottle as a gift.
He seems to be having fun in the photograph, but what was said hasn’t reached the Penderyn Newsdesk yet!
