Lightly peated

World-renowned – our Peated Malts find their way to all four corners of the globe. The lightest of our peated malt range, it is produced from conventional two-row spring pot still malt, but the magic happens in the unique way we introduce peat reek and cure it into the grain through the kilning stage.
