If you're not already a huge fan of Penderyn, it's time to jump aboard the train.

But hurry — and hold on tight — because this engine only knows one speed, and that's fast.

Penderyn has taken home more than fifty awards since 2018, including European Whisky of the Year at Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible in 2020 and a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards that same year. 

This year it added even more to its war chest, claiming three gold awards and 2 "Double Gold"s for five of their single malt whiskies.

What makes this Brecon Beacons distiller so beloved? 

Their distillations are done in a custom-built copper pot, and the resultant single malts are among the most aromatic, complex, and powerful in the industry.

We've partnered with them to bring you two stars from their portfolio.

First up: a Small Batch Limited Release (just 1,096 bottles) Single Malt aged in 50% PX Sherry and 50% Carcavelos Fortified Portuguese wine and bottled at a whopping 119 proof. We luxuriated in this at our tasting, settling in for an experience that unfolded over the course of an hour. The nose is alive with notes of honey, blackberries, dried apricot, figs, and cinnamon, while the palate deepens the experience, enveloping you in fruit (grapes, figs, dates), richness (particularly of toffee), and spice (white pepper and nutmeg, among them). That presence of fruit carries through to the finish, where a wave of fruit cake and spiced fruit takes you home.

Hiraeth is the 8th in Penderyn’s "Icons of Wales" series (the name, from the Welsh, roughly translates to a kind of yearning for home). Last winter, we brought you the 7th in that series, Rhiannon, a powerful and expressive single malt that sold out quickly. Hiraeth is every bit its equal. Finished in an ex-Bourbon cask and bottled at 92 proof, it represents a striking first for this distinguished distillery — the first time Penderyn has released a core range single malt using mainly spirit from pot stills. Where the Small Batch Limited Release impresses you from the start with its fruit and richness and size, Hiraeth takes a different tack. It's elegant and floral, with a gorgeous and aromatically complex nose. On the palate, this is a delicate, smooth ride, one enlivened by soft notes of honey and vanilla. That floral sweetness tapers toward the finish, leaving you with a pleasing maltiness.

We're able to extend this offer of special Concierge Family pricing for the next week, so don't miss your opportunity to claim two of the finest and most rewarding single malts around and show your love and support for the passionate craftsmanship of one of the greatest of all distillers!
