Penderyn are delighted to announce that two of our single malts won Gold Awards at the recent World Whisky Masters. Portwood 46 won Gold in the ‘Europe Single Malt Super Premium’ category and was described as ‘full-bodied and well matured’. Always a big favourite among whisky connoisseurs this new bottling is no exception, as strong sales from our Distillery Shop and Online Store indicate. Tasting notes:
‘Aromas of rich dried fruits with dark chocolate and cranberries; a hint of toasty oak mingles with a baked nutty dryness. On the palate a creamy richness with some honey and spiced notes emerging. The finish is smooth with a soft oak and honey sweetness lingering gently on the tongue.’
Penderyn Celt, described at the awards as, ‘autumnal’, and ‘peat-fire smoky’ won Gold in the ‘Europe Single Malt Premium’ category, and was also featured at #1 in the Spirits Business ‘Top 10 Best Value For Money World Whiskies.’ One of the judges was Greg Dillon, luxury spirits writer and brand consultant, who visited our distillery recently. He is pictured above with Nagesh Balusu, general manager at Salt Whisky Bar and Dining Room in Marble Arch, London.
Rob Weller, Penderyn’s Sales Manager, said, ‘Winning these prestigious prizes proves that our whiskies are becoming part of an international whisky conversation.’
