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.
