Scottish Whisky Awards 2020

This year marked the second ever Scottish Whisky Awards and an event we’re proud to have been a part of since it’s inception. It was a slightly different awards dinner from the usual evening that we have become accustomed as it took the form of a digital awards ceremony.

An Introduction to our Peated Malts

Peated malt is a speciality product predominantly used by Distillers to produce peated whisky, although it is occasionally used by Brewers to produced beers with smoky undertones. For Baird’s, peated malt is solely produced at the Inverness plant in the Highland capital to service both the domestic and export markets, products range from lightly peated distilling malt though to heavily peated distilling malt. Malting is an art consisting of three very distinct stages, they are steeping, germination and kilning. Kilning is the point where peat reek(smoke) is introduced to the malt bed to impart the wonderful smoky characters to the grains.
