Penderyn is the only whisky distillery in Wales, but may soon spin off a second distillery under its name in nearby Swansea. Local leaders want a second Penderyn Distillery as part of their revitalization plan for a former copper works along the River Tawe, and the idea fits with Penderyn’s plans for future expansion. We’ll discuss the project with Welsh Whisky Company managing director Stephen Davies and look at Penderyn’s long-term future on WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, BenRiach’s sale to Brown-Forman is complete – and that leaves just one of every four Scotch Whisky distilleries in Scottish hands. We’ll also look at new whiskies from around the world, and find out why Bruce Springsteen keeps coming back to his favorite Dublin pub!
