The Barley - Our Raw Materials
The Company does not cut corners and always uses the finest raw materials that each new growing season provides. All barleys are bought on sample which means the Company is not exposed to blending variations associated with barley "bulking" operations. The best barleys ensure the supply of quality malt, season after season.
