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!
From Idea to Reality

We must give a massive shoutout to Westerham Brewery who took us up on the call for new malt suggestions. They came forward with the fabulous idea of producing a Vienna Malt with a heritage variety, after being inspired by the book Vienna Lager by Andreas Krennmair. Thanks so much to Westerham for their proposal. It has been a very exciting project; – we are very happy with the results and are sure other brewers will want to try this excellent (although we say so ourselves) new heritage malt.
So, let us introduce to you to the latest in our latest Small Batch Series: Haná Vienna Malt. It pairs a heritage 1842 Czech Moravia barley variety, with a renowned malt style; Vienna, making it authentic as well.
Check out our Haná journey here. After introducing Haná Malt as the first in our one-off Small Batch Series – and reintroducing it this year because it was so popular – we couldn’t resist using this wonderful barley again to see what else it had to offer.
For Haná Vienna, the barley is expertly malted, and carefully kilned to a colour of 8.1, bringing beautiful aromas of sweet, malty bread to the final beer, with a wonderfully smooth finish. Brew with this malt to bring the past to life right before your eyes, nose and mouth! Use Haná Vienna at up to 60% of the grist.
Pair it with Clear Choice® Extra Pale Malt for a wonderfully clear and crisp beer.
Try our Heritage Haná Pilsen Malt or German Pilsner Malt to recreate a piece of history and produce the truest to style authentic Vienna Lager. You’ll be in for a treat – and so will your brewery’s fans.
“The beer (It Means Nothing To Me – Vienna Lager) we made tastes great! Would definitely recommend this malt!”
Robert Wicks, Westerham Brewery
