meDium peated

World-renowned, our Peated Malt finds its way to all four corners of the globe. 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. At the end of the germination process, the malt is then partially kilned and then we introduce the peat smoke for 65-70 hours. This is the point at which our Peated Malt really takes on a unique character and what sets us apart from others trying to match the traditional process that we have perfected over decades.
