A Welsh whisky has become the number-one malt whisky on sale in Wetherspoon pubs – outselling three other Scottish malts.
Since April 2009, Penderyn Single Malt Whisky has been available in all Wetherspoon pubs across the UK and has now become the number-one malt whisky, ahead of Glenfiddich, Glenmorangie and The Glenlivet.
Wetherspoon’s chief executive, John Hutson, said: “All four of the malt whiskies available in our pubs are first-class spirits and popular with customers.
“Initially, Penderyn was served in our Welsh pubs only, but, since April, it has been served nationally and has proven such a hit with customers that it is now the number-one-selling malt whisky in Wetherspoon pubs.”
Penderyn Distillery’s managing director, Stephen Davies, said: “We are pleased to learn that Penderyn Single Malt Whisky has made such a huge impact in Wetherspoon’s pubs and bars.
“Penderyn is outselling its three Scotch malt whisky counterparts in Wetherspoon; considering that these are all well-established, quality whiskies, it is a massive compliment to the Penderyn brand.”
