Distillers Malt - 1kg Grain


Distiller's Malt

Gladfield Distiller’s Malt is a premium malt produced exclusively from two-row distilling barley. The barley has been gently kilned to preserve enzyme content, and the resulting malt has both high extract and diastatic power. Distiller’s Malt will add malty, sweet flavours to a finished whisky.

Gladfield’s Distiller’s Malt is primarily suited to single malt distilling, but can be used in conjunction with Mild Peat Smoked Malt or Manuka Smoked Malt to create a unique blended whisky.
