Matthew Rhys on One Nation Under Whisky

Emmy-Winning Matthew Rhys on Penderyn, Acting, Wales and Whisky.

At the recent St David’s Day Dinner in New York, Joshua Hatton (who is part of our US Importers ImpEx Bev) was introduced to Emmy-winning Welsh actor, Matthew Rhys, by Sian Whitelock, Penderyn’s Brand Director.

Matthew is a big fan of Penderyn and occasionally works as an unofficial Brand Ambassador, and therefore agreed to be interviewed by Joshua and his co-host Jason Johnstone-Yellin for their ‘One Nation Under Whisky‘ podcast. During the conversation Matthew, Joshua and Jason tasted and enthused about Penderyn’s Madeira 46 and Rich Oak Single Cask.

Its a very entertaining 2 hours and you can listen to the podcast here.

Amongst topics discussed were what Penderyn opening a distillery in Wales meant to this very passionate Welshman; meeting Stephen Spielberg; and how ‘monkey nuts’ means a very different thing State-side than it does in the UK!

Well worth a listen.
