A brand new Peated Portwood finished whisky at 43%. The 6th in our ‘Icons of Wales’ series was launched on the 1st March 2019, and commemorates the original Welsh Whisky distillery at Frongoch, near Bala, which closed over 100 years ago. Queen Victoria visited there in 1891 and on the 26th July 1895 the Welsh Whisky Co. received a warrant, and Royal Welsh Whisky was born.
The Red Dragon is the national flag of Wales and the Royal Welsh badge bears the moto ‘Y ddraig goch ddyry cychwyn’, which translates as ‘The red dragon inspires action’. It features in ancient Welsh tales and was the battle standard of legendary Welsh princes. Welshman Henry Tudor took the flag to Bosworth, where, in 1485, he became the last king of England to be crowned on the battlefield.
This is the latest addition to our Gold Range.
