‘What is a Penderyn Place?’
Things have changed for Penderyn since our first bottle went off the production line in 2004. We used to know the bars that sold our products by name, but now it’s fair to say we’re pretty much everywhere in Wales, and present in hundreds of bars across the UK and overseas.
Some places are very important to us. For example, Penderyn has a very close relationship with Brown’s Hotel in Laugharne – Dylan Thomas’ ‘strangest town in Wales’ – and its sister business The New Three Mariners next door. Brown’s Hotel has an iconic bar, luxurious rooms (most of which are dog-friendly) and the recently opened (July 2018) Penderyn Restaurant, whilst the Mariners offers everything you’d want from a busy local pub.
Nearer to home, The Old Red Lion in Penderyn village is a great atmospheric pub with excellent food; the The Ty Newydd is an excellent place to stay if you’re in the area, and the The Glancynon Inn in nearby Hirwaun is where the Penderyn Distillery story began with a late-night conversation in the bar
Today Penderyn is sold in bars across the globe after recent expansions into countries such as Russia, USA, China and Japan. We were intrigued to see the full range of Penderyn whiskies in a bar in Siberia recently!
