Welsh Single Malt Whisky 'Celt'
Welsh Single Malt Whisky 'Celt', Penderyn Distillery
Penderyn Single Malt Whisky was launched on March 1, 2004—a date which signaled the return of whisky distillation to Wales after an absence of more than 100 years. The distillery was officially opened by HRH, Prince Charles, and championed by the late Dr. Jim Swan, a legendary force in the world of whisky and also Penderyn’s master blender. The whisky is distilled in a unique, specially-commissioned still that produces a flavorful spirit at 92% ABV which is then married with fresh spring water drawn from directly beneath the distillery at Brecon Beacons Park. An exciting project with the heart of Wales behind it!
Celt is a single malt whisky finished in ex-peated quarter casks, bottled at 43% ABV. A flavor profile of mild smoke, seaside air, and warm marmalade on toast melt into a pleasantly bitter finish in this gentle introduction to the world of peated whisky.
