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!

Norfolk is Maris Otter’s heartland. Located just 20 miles from our malting is the mother field, where all Maris Otter seed comes from. Crisp are the largest buyer of Maris Otter barley and some of our farmers have been growing it since its first crop in 1965.
Prized by home and commercial brewers for its depth of flavour, it’s also finding a home in malt driven whiskies in both the UK, Europe and in the emerging American single malt category. This version, like the other heritage grains, is floor malted and is gently kilned over three days in our natural draft kiln, giving a deeper flavour than the conventionally kilned Maris.
