Beer has been a part of Welsh life for ages, but in the mid-1800s beer drinking became even more popular. The Industrial Revolution and Wales’ metal industries (tinplate production, ore smelting and steelworks) combined to provide great amounts of backbreaking labor for workers These men drank beer that was restoring and low in alcohol … it could be consumed by the pint to less negative effect than other beers with higher alcohol content.

Blended Welsh whisky is produced and bottled in Brecon, Wales.
