The are lots of local drinks distilled brewed and pressed in the Brecon Beacons!
We’re lucky enough to have the only whisky distillery in Wales, a great local brewery and an award winning wine maker all situated in the Brecon Beacons
Penderyn Distillery is based in the traditional village of Penderyn. Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky was first launched on St David’s Day, 1st March 2004. The Welsh Whisky Company has already won a number of prestigious international awards for the quality and taste of the whisky and for its distinctive and stylish packaging.
The Sugarloaf Vineyards have 5 acres of vines growing on the South facing slopes of the Sugar Loaf Mountain in Abergavenny, producing a variety of distinctive, smooth, quality Welsh wines. Sugar Loaf Vineyards have 7 varieties of grapes planeted on 5 acres of south facing slopes, which ensures excellent ripening of the grapes, while the balanced soils add a special character of the wine. Their wines have achieved “Quality Status” from the European Wine Standards Boards and have won awards in national competitions.
Brecon Brewing was recently taken over by the former head brewer of Breconshire Brewery.
The brewery has sprang back into life after being reestablished earlier 2011; by one of Wales’ best known brewers Buster Grant. Brecon Brewing have created a range of beers full of flavour and character inspired by the dramatic locality, working with the local community and reigniting interest in Brecon. They’re currently concentrating on cask real ales, but hope to have bottled beers after Christmas.
