Royal Mint Factory Tour & Welsh Whiskey Distillery

Royal Mint Factory Tour & Welsh Whiskey Distillery

A very interesting day visit to the Royal Mint in South Wales.

On this trip we visit two very different type Factories and their museums in South Wales. Our first stop will the Royal Mint which has opened its doors to the general public where you will enjoy a behind the scenes look at one of Britain’s oldest manufacturing organisations.

Our second visit sees us visit the distillery at Penderyn, the home of the award winning Penderyn Single malt Welsh Whiskey and other high quality spirits.

 

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint has been minting our coins for over 1000 years and for over 500 years in the Tower of London. The UK’s conversion in 1967 to decimal coinage prompted the building of the new Royal Mint building in South Wales. The guided factory tour brings you into contact with the processes behind the nation’s coinage and reveal the craftsmanship involved in taking blank pieces of metal from the design stage to being struck as coins.

The visitor centre will offer a look into the Royal Mint’s rich heritage plus the display of its rare and unusual coins and medals from across the world. For an extra payment (Payable on arrival) you may wish to have your photograph surrounded by coins or strike your own coin. There is also a café and a gift shop to enjoy.

 

The Penderyn Distillery

The Penderyn Distillery has an award-winning Visitor Centre and during the hour-long tour you will learn about the founding of Penderyn, how their award-winning whisky is made and what makes it so unique. See their mill, the mash tun, their innovative single copper-pot Penderyn stills and their latest addition – a pair of pot stills.

At the end of your tour sample some of their products in the Tasting Bar.
