Since 1870 we’ve lived and breathed malting. With this passion and expertise, and by combining traditional and modern techniques, we create an impressive range of malted and non-malted products, including several unique and exclusive barley malts.
We have a wide range of malts suitable for brewing and distilling to provide you with the foundations for creating your next beer or whisky.
From our traditional floor maltings to our state-of-the-art packaging line, all of our malts are processed by a team of skilled maltsters. Find out more about our different processes here.
Our team of maltsters and brewers have put together a number of different technical materials, from recipes to blog posts on conditioning, to assist you in your brewery or distillery. Find out more here in this section.
There is nothing more we love than talking to brewers and distillers so if you have any questions, or would like to arrange a call with a member of our team, please feel free to get in touch – we would love to hear from you!

Barley Wine Oaty Pale Ale
Crystal and Cara Malts are so named for the caramelisation and crystallization of the sugars present in the barley kernel. We take green malt from germination and by applying heat while maintaining the moisture content we are able to liquify the endosperm of the barley, transforming the starch into sugars. Heat is then applied and the caramelisation begins.
In the case of Crystal Malts, when the endosperm cools, sugar crystals are formed. When you cut across the grain the glassy sheen of crystalized sugar can be seen.
Each Crystal Malt imparts a clean, nutty, caramel-like sweetness to your beers. Extra Light Crystal gives a subtle caramel flavour.
