Penderyn are delighted to announce that the eminent broadcaster and BBC radio Wales ‘DJ’ Roy Noble has joined our board as a Non Executive Director. Roy has been associated with the distillery from the start, but now he’s ‘official’ as we say in Wales!
As he is a man of words, we’ll let Roy tell the story, ‘Becoming a director is an absolute pleasure and privilege. Being there at the birth of Penderyn, albeit just as a side-liner and small shareholder, means it has been so exciting to witness the growth and success of a product which fused history and geography; the history being wondrously mystical and the geography marrying the Heads of the Valleys industrial belt with the wild moorlands and legendary hills of the Brecon Beacons.’
Roy continued, ‘As a Valleys man , supporting it, sipping it, sipping it, swigging it, has been a vibrant boost to my well being, my body, my soul and spirit. I know the sentiments are lyrical, but partaking of Penderyn in warm socks in the glow of a late evening at a fireside arm-chair, makes you like that. I look forward immensely to my new position, helping to oil the wheels of the wagons as each bottle takes Wales to the world.’
Sian Whitelock, Penderyn’s Brand Director said, ‘ Roy’s enthusiasm and loyalty to Penderyn has been hugely appreciated over the years, and its it’s wonderful to announce that he has now joined our board.’
