Location : Cardiff Castle, Castle Street, Cardiff, CF10 3RB, Wales, UK
In the heart of the capital city is Cardiff Castle, a truly remarkable site with a history that spans over 2000 years. Roman soldiers slept here, noble knights held court here, and the Bute family, with extraordinary wealth and vision, transformed the Castle into a romantic Victorian fantasy. ‘Eccentric genius’ architect William Burges was given free rein to create the amazingly lavish and opulent interiors; each breath taking room rich with murals, stained glass, gilding and superb craftsmanship. Recent developments include the opening of the Wartime Shelters, an evocative re-creation of a bygone era when the Castle’s tunnels were used as a place of refuge during the Second World War air raids.

Location : The Welsh Whisky Company, Penderyn Distillery, Penderyn, CF44 0SX
Penderyn Distillery is the only distillery in Wales, one of the smallest distilleries in the world and the first to legally distil a whisky spirit in Wales for more than 100 years.
Penderyn Distillery opened its doors to visitors in June 2008 with the launch of its new purpose designed and built Visitor Centre. You can now enjoy a distillery tour, take a journey through the history of single malt whisky making in Wales, and understand the distilling process at first hand. The aim of opening the distillery to visitors is to educate and inform people about the ancient art of distilling whisky and to demonstrate the differences between Penderyn's process and the distilling of Scottish, Irish and American whiskies.
Penderyn Single Malt Whisky was launched by His Royal Highness Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales, on 1st March 2004 at St. David’s Hall in Cardiff. Since then, Penderyn Single Malt Whisky has experienced considerable success. It is now found on the shelves of both supermarkets and specialist whisky shops throughout the UK and is distributed to 16 countries, including 28 US states. Penderyn Single Malt Whisky has also won high critical acclaim and a number of prestigious international whisky awards and medals, and is now considered one of the world's finest premium whiskies.
After a guided tour of the distillery, visit the tasting room and have a chance to sample two Penderyn products.
Please note: For safety reasons the venue cannot permit under-16s, or anyone in a wheelchair, into the main distillery production area. An alternative route available if required – please let us know if you require this route at least 4 weeks prior to the visit. This route includes an aspect of self-guiding, viewing the process from behind a screen and joining the main distillery tour at a later stage. Any under-16s taking this alternative route must be accompanied by an adult. Flat sensible footwear is required, and no phones or cameras are to be used.
