Day Out : Penderyn Whisky Tour

If you're looking for a day out in Wales then why not take a tour of Penderyn Whisky Distillery?

Spencer and I promised to take my dad for a tour as a Father's Day present, he loves Whisky so our gift was to take him on the tour and let him choose a bottle of whisky to take home, we thought it was a great gift for him and contained a little more thought than the usual bottle of whisky alone.

We managed to buy the tickets for the tour cheaply via Groupon, it comes up on there quite often so keep your eyes peeled. When it isn't on offer the tickets are £8.50 per person which isn't too bad.

The tour itself was actually very interesting, as well as learning about the process of making the whisky you also learn about the history of the whisky. We were shocked to hear just how far the whisky has travelled and how famous it is, it made us super proud that it is produced in our country.

The tour finishes in the bar where you can buy as many drinks as you like and also use the vouchers that you are given at the beginning of the tour. Each person is given two vouchers, you can either use both vouchers against a miniature to take home or use both vouchers for two tastings at the bar.

Due to being pregnant when we were there I cashed both vouchers in for a miniature, I opted for the Merlyn which is a cream liqueur. I haven't actually drank mine yet but have tried it in the past and it is delicious.

Overall we had a great day out, it wasn't something that I would have choose to do for myself, I only went as part of my dad's present, but I did end up having a great day. My dad who loves whisky had an amazing day!

  1. This would be a great Father's Day present for my dad, and not a bad price either, even when it's not on Groupon. It looks like a brilliant day for a whiskey fan!

  2. I love Penderyn and also the Merlin cream liqueur. Great present idea - as long as I can bribe the husband to drive of course!

  3. Ooh, great to see you reviewing this. I thought about getting this as a present for my parents, as they both loe whiskey, but I wasn't sure whether it'd be any good or not. I'll look out for it again on Groupon x

  4. This looks great. A good pressie idea. May buy this for a christmas pressie for the father in law x #WhenInWales
