One of the few remaining independent distilleries, Penderyn takes its name from the old Welsh village in which it is located and nestles in the foothills of the ancient Brecon Beacons mountain range. The Brecon Beacons National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty famed for its breathtaking scenery, open moorland, clear rivers and tumultuous waterfalls. Members of the public can enjoy a distillery tour, take a journey through the history of single malt whisky making in Wales, and understand the distilling process at first hand. On arrival you will be greeted by your tour guide and taken through to the exhibition area where you can browse at your leisure and learn for yourself the history of whisky making in Wales as well as more general Welsh history. Watch the short video about how Penderyn first started, and how it has developed since its launch in 2004. Your guide will then join you and take you through to the next section where you will be able to: *View the Barley, Malt Bins, Grist Mill, Mash Tun and Fermenters that produce the unique Penderyn Malted Barley Wash. *View the Single Pot Stills at Penderyn Distillery that were designed by Dr. David Faraday, a descendant of famous physicist Sir Michael Faraday. You can also view the more traditional brand new Double Pot Stills. If distillations are in process you will be able to see the spirit being drawn into the spirit safe. *See the barrel display area when your guide will describe how the different expressions of Penderyn whisky are matured and talk you through the various stages of the maturation process. *Learn about the other products - Merlyn Cream Liqueur, Brecon Five Vodka and Brecon Special Reserve Gin. Feel and smell the botanicals that are used to make Brecon Special Reserve Gin. *Visit the tasting room and sample the products - Penderyn Single Malt Whisky, Brecon Five Vodka, Brecon Gin and Merlyn Cream Liqueur. *Browse the retail shop for Penderyn Spirits and merchandise. « less

This long history, dating back to the 1680s, is told through many kinds of objects including uniforms, medals, weapons and models. The regiments have seen action in many prominent events, including the British campaign in South Africa (visit us and discover what really happened in the 1879 Zulu War!), And both world wars. Forty-three of the regiments' soldiers have received the Victoria Cross, and we commemorate their sacrifice and heroism as well as that of all the men and women associated with our regiments who have contributed so much to our country. « less

The hide has some wooden benches to sit on and standing room with a shelf to rest a camera on . We feed at 3.00pm summer and then 2.00pm when the clocks change the end of October . You need to be inside the hides before feeding time , if you arrive after feeding time you may not be allowed into the hides because this disturbs the people already inside and waiting. NOISE must be kept to a minimum so that the Red Kites are not scared away Children must be taken out if making too much noise . Remember these birds are wild and we have no control on how many will turn up or how soon they will dive in for the food . Every day is different and also weather dependant etc etc « less
