You’ve heard of Irish whiskey. You’ve heard of Scotch. But what about whiskey from their neighbor, Wales? After more than a century in exile (the country’s last distillery, Frongoch, shuttered in the early 1900s), the industry made a comeback in 2004 when Penderyn Single Malt was launched on St. David’s Day, a celebratory day for the patron saint of Wales. The Distillery is located in the Brecon Beacons, a breathtakingly beautiful mountain range and national park in South Wales, and is now sold all around the world.
