Toll Malt

At Bairds, we offer brewers and distillers the opportunity to convert barley that they have supplied themselves which is where working in partnership is a perfect way to emphasise the whole supply chain . As we have four malting locations across the UK with various batch sizes, we are able to offer a variety of bespoke services to customers who want their barley converted to malt.

Toll Malting is a unique arrangement with our customers as we offer the ability to embark on a particular malt journey that emphasises the provenance and traceability of the grain. We have converted barley for customers from single estates to celebrate a multi-generational relationship between the grower and distillery. 

We have also toll malted single grains for customers who have wanted to complete commercial distilling trials of heritage barley grains grown locally to them. Such projects have identified barley strains that grow particularly well within the distiller’s own micro-climate and ultimately provided the maximum terroir from which to produce their spirit. 

This process can represent a long journey from the inception of the idea to the final batch of malt but can also provide some of the most exciting chapters in enabling customers to develop a unique product specific to their own brand.

Bairds have been supplying our malt requirements for the Ardnamurchan Distillery since we began production in 2014. The ability to toll malt from our own barely in Fife, along with additional supply of wholly-grown Scottish malted barley is fundamental to our ongoing commitment to full traceability and transparency. We remain delighted with the quality of malt provided each year and look forward to continued supply for the years to come.
