The announcement follows an offer of funding support from the Welsh Government. The proposed development will be the Welsh Whisky Company’s first expansion from its Penderyn site, in the Brecon Beacons.
Commenting on the news, Stephen Davies, Chief Executive of Penderyn Distillery, said: “The confirmation of Welsh Government support is a major step towards achieving our plans for a brand new distillery and visitor centre in Llandudno. We believe the Distillery will allow us to introduce unique and innovative single malt whiskies, distilled in North Wales, as well as providing an attraction that will complement the already vibrant and diverse tourism scene in north Wales, and contribute towards extending the visitor season further. With our funding package now in place, we will be developing our proposals further over the coming months and engaging with stakeholders and the local community as we prepare our planning application.”
In addition to its new second site, Penderyn are also planning to open a third distillery in Swansea, which is scheduled to open in 2022/23.
