Penderyn to triple production

Welsh whisky producer Penderyn has secured bank funding to triple production of its single malts.

The distiller has signed a £900,000 package with HSBC which will allow it to build three new stills to take its production up to close to 500,000 bottles a year.

It is aiming to boost exports and double turnover over the next five to seven years.

Managing director Stephen Davies said: “The growth of the business has been constrained by a lack of production capacity rather than a lack of demand, so this investment will help us to propel the company forward.

“We have established a strong brand and business and we are now at the stage where we want to capitalise on that and look for expansion.

“Whisky is a competitive marketplace but we are fully confident we can increase sales both at home and abroad.”

Penderyn has listings for its whiskies with all the major supermarkets and its product range also includes gin, vodka and a cream liqueur.

It began distilling in 2000 and launched its first whisky four years later.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
