Manuka Smoked Malt

Gladfield Malt is proud to produce the world’s only Manuka Smoked malt. We take the same barley varieties that we use to make our top quality Distiller’s Malt, and place the grains in our in-house smoker with 100% New Zealand grown West Coast Manuka wood.

Our Manuka Smoked malt is smooth and overlaid with floral, sweet characteristics, which are excellent when distilled. Be prepared for a smooth, natural smokiness with distinct Manuka honey notes to the finished whisky, for a taste that is uniquely New Zealand.
