Single Cask, Single Malt
Whisky from Wales
When the Welsh Whisky Distillery Company was finally liquidated in 1910, it seemed that Welsh whisky would be no more. Yet, rising from the ashes, Wales began to distil whisky again in the early 2000s. With the tradition revived and developing, we’re proud and excited to be making our contribution: enriching the Welsh whisky offering with a ‘grain to glass’ Welsh Origin Whisky.
WELSH ORIGIN WHISKY
In the Welsh Wind ‘Welsh Origin Whisky’ is a single malt whisky distilled using Welsh-grown barley. Entirely processed in Wales and distilled at In the Welsh Wind, we work with our local farmers to bring you a uniquely Welsh whisky.
We’ve cut our teeth, learning from others and developing our processes; understanding the grain, respecting the traditions of whisky yet always exploring how to bring something more, to make a real and lasting impact.
“Our grain never crosses the border”
Welsh grain is a given. Grown in the fields of Wales, nurtured and harvested by the farmers who live and breathe this land. Their support has been invaluable as we’ve progressed our ambition for a fully Welsh whisky. Working with our partners has given us a greater appreciation of the agriculture that sustains us and the rhythms of the seasons.
Where we’re going the extra mile is to ensure that all the processes that create an exceptional whisky – the drying of the grain, the malting, the mashing, the fermentation – and of course the distillation – take place in Wales. To secure this integrity, the Welsh heart of our whisky, we have established the first Welsh malting house for over 100 years.
Teaming up with some of the most exciting distilleries in the UK, we are developing a series of independent bottlings. Each release is designed to bring you a unique In the Welsh Wind take on great whiskies.
