Authentic flavor for smoky malt whisky. Historically, Scottish malthouses used peat as the fuel for kiln-drying malt, which added a phenolic flavor to the dried malt. This tradition continues at the Gleneagle malting plant in Scotland; where they control the introduction of peat smoke during the kilning phase. This gives the Premium Peated Distilling Malt the distinctive flavor that characterizes many of the west coast Scottish island whiskies. Also suitable for smoked beer styles, a little goes a long way!
The village of Portgordon, Scotland is home to Crisp Malting Group’s Gleneagles maltings. Located in the heart of Speyside, just miles from the storied River Spey, Gleneagles supplies malts to distilleries down the road and around the world. All of Crisp’s malting plants are situated in prime malting barley-producing areas. These areas have long traditions of consistently producing high quality malting barley. In most seasons Crisp is able to procure the vast majority of their requirements within a 100km radius of each plant. This means that each bag of Gleneagles Malts used in your mashbill is imbued with the heritage and quality of traditional Scottish whisky distilling.
