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!

We’ve been making peated malt at our Speyside maltings in Portgordon for the past 20 years. We supply distillers not just in Scotland but all over the world including prominent whisky makers in Japan, the USA, Australia, Europe and England.
Our peated malt is prized for its intense smoke character and this is all down to our wet smoking method which allows the peat smoke to penetrate the barley kernel fully. We can provide various levels of peating dependent on the customer’s requirements and typically produce three levels of “smokiness”; lightly peated malt (15 ppm phenol), medium peated malt (25ppm) and heavy peated malt (50ppm). Higher levels of phenol are available on request.
Whatever the size, style and approach of your brewery or distillery, our maltsters are here to help. We’d love to hear from you, understand your malt needs and show how our malts can make all the difference to your beers and spirits.
