Welsh Whisky Company's Penderyn Distillery has unveiled plans to open a £5m distillery and visitor centre.
The Welsh government has offered £1.4m towards the project, which will launch in Llandudno by 2021.
Stephen Davies of Penderyn Distillery, said, 'The confirmation of government support is a major step towards achieving our plans. With our funding package now in place, we will be developing our proposals further.'
Lesley Griffiths, minister for environment, energy and rural affairs, added, 'Penderyn is a great example of how the Welsh food and drinks sector is thriving and gaining a global reputation. I'm pleased that we have been able to support Penderyn to develop their business.'
This is the second new distillery and visitor centre planned but will open first. Last month, the firm was given the green light to build a distillery and visitor centre in Swansea.
The company will be redeveloping a disused building at the Hafod Morfa Copperworks site in Swansea, and plans to open in 2022.
