Gareth ‘Alfie’ Thomas… and other visitors

Penderyn People

We’ve had some pretty high-powered visitors recently. Firstly, Welsh rugby legend Gareth ‘Alfie’ Thomas is set to become one of our unofficial Penderyn Ambassadors, helping to spread the word about our award-winning whiskies. (If truth be told, as a massive patriot and a huge fan of both Penderyn and Welsh products in general, he was already doing this!) Alfie took the tour with Sian, our Brand Director, and brought a few friends as well. He was particularly partial to our peated whiskies, and was thrilled to discover our Merlyn Cream Liqueur which he described as ‘amazing!’

We’ve also had recent visits from Rupert Wheeler, editor of the Whisky Magazine (pictured with Stephen Davies, our MD), who not only visited the distillery but experienced the ‘Liquor, Literature & Laugharne’ package we run in conjunction with the iconic Brown’s Hotel in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire. The stay takes in a Penderyn Masterclass and a guided tour as well as a 2 night stay in the hotel’s sumptuous rooms (Ring 01994 427 688 for more info).

Finally Horst and Theresia Luning (pictured with Gian, our Technical & Sales Manager) from German online whisky store and also stopped by. They were touring Scottish distilleries and stopped off in their lovely Tesla electric car on their way back to Germany. Thankfully we’d just had a Tesla charging point installed! Having such luminaries visit us helps spread the Penderyn brand world wide.
