Masterclass for 2 Voucher
Held in small groups to ensure that each person gets the maximum benefit from the learning experience, a Penderyn Masterclass and whisky tasting begins with a short “getting to know you” session, during which everyone can relax and enjoy some refreshments. At this stage we also cover the various still designs and distillation processes used by Scottish, Irish and Welsh whisky distillers, and you’ll begin to learn that Penderyn single malt whiskies are unique. You will learn about the different types of whisky from single malt through to bourbon and Tennessee whiskies and how Welsh whisky differs from Scotch whisky.
Next up, the still room, where everything should now fall into place. You will see examples of our Bourbon, Madeira, Peated, Sherry and Port barrels and your guide is there to answer your questions throughout. Back in the Boardroom, you will experience how to nose whisky as well as enjoy whisky tasting, using various expressions of Penderyn single malt whisky.
Your Penderyn Masterclass and whisky tasting session ends with a gift, which is included in the price. Your guide then takes you to the exhibition area and whisky tasting room so that you can browse at your leisure and sample more of our single malt whiskies, vodkas, gins and cream liqueurs if you wish. All in all, an experience not to be missed!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VISITORS
Please note that, while children are welcome to visit the distillery, we are a commercial whisky distillery, producing a product which is strictly, and legally, for adult consumption. We do, therefore, expect parents to use their judgement when considering visiting such a venue as we do not have any facilities to entertain children, and no visitors under the age of 16 are permitted to access our production area. Any children brought to the distillery must be supervised at all times and we reserve the right to ask them and their accompanying guardian to leave if they disrupt the experience of our other visitors.
Our production area is currently inaccessible to wheelchair users; however, an alternative tour route is available. Flat, sensible footwear must be worn by visitors at all times during the tour or Masterclass – flip flops, heels or open-toed shoes will not be permitted.
In the interests of safety, the use of mobile phones, cameras and other electrical equipment is prohibited in the production area; anyone refusing to comply with these rules will be asked to leave the tour.
We are a working distillery and so, for operational reasons, we cannot guarantee that all or any of our plant will be working at the time of your visit. However, you may be able to see into the still and mash tun, which can’t be done when we are distilling.
