Penderyn Distillery Visitor Centre

Book Tickets Online


Penderyn Distillery is located in the Grade 2 listed former Old Board School in Lloyd St, which was built in 1881. Penderyn started out in the Brecon Beacons in 2000, the first distillery in Wales for over 100 years, and is the home of Welsh whisky. They opened this new distillery in Llandudno in May 2021, and the building has been fully restored retaining many original features, including the parquet floors, wall tiles, roof beams and the old steel banisters. The shop is open 7 days a week, and tours are available.

During the hour-long tour you will learn about the founding of Penderyn, the new distillery building, how our award-winning whisky is made and what makes it so unique. See the mill, the mash tun, and the innovative single copper-pot Penderyn Faraday still. This produces a spirit at an industry high of 92%, which makes Penderyn’s whiskies light, fruity and flavoursome. At the end of your tour sample some of our products in the wonderful Tasting Bar. Miniatures are available for drivers.

Two-and-a-half hour Masterclasses are also available, and we the Masterclass room can be hired for meetings
