Whisky Words: Faraday Still

Whisky Words: Faraday Still

Penderyn's unique Faraday Still, is a single copper pot attached to a column installed with perforated plates. As the liquid begins to bubble, vapour rises into the copper column above the still. This vapour condenses on the first plate and returns to the still. 

The process continues and the vapour reaches the second plate… and so on, before it evaporates and again falls back into the pot. The distilling team closely guard the smooth, refined spirit until it is eventually drawn from the seventh plate and arrives in the spirit safe – drop by drop – at an industry high of 92% ABV.

Learn more about the Farady Still on a tour of Penderyn's Brecon Beacons distillery as part of our Diploma in Single Malt Whisky (26 & 27 June 2023).

Kirsty McKerrow, EWA Founder & Managing Director, said: We’re delighted to be taking our flagship Diploma in Single Malt Whisky to South Wales. Penderyn produces award-winning single malt whiskies and – with a third distillery on the way this year in Swansea following the already operational second site in Llandudno – the company is driving the growth of Welsh whisky as a legitimate and distinct category.
