The results of the first whisky award ceremony of 2019 are in, and it’s a prestigious one. Our Penderyn Gold Range Sherrywood Single Malt 46% won Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Anthony Dias Blue, SFWSC’s Executive Director said, ‘Almost 3,000 spirits were judged this year—the largest number of entries in our 19-year history.’
This is a great result as we have seen a surge in sales in the US. Our import partners, Impex Bev, of South San Francisco have done a terrific job. We are now in 48 states and Sam Filmus and his team offer a professional and passionate partnership. We currently have 5 whiskies available in the US, and are planning on 3 more this year.
Stephen Davies, Penderyn’s Chief Exec, said, ‘This is a major award. The SFWSC is one of the most respected of the international competitions, and this is the first time we have won gold at this competition. It’s clear that our presence in the US is growing and winning awards like this can only help raise our profile even further.’
