Distillers Malt

Gladfield’s Distillers Malt is a premium malt produced exclusively from 2-row distilling barley varieties with the right Nitrogen content. The barley has been gently kilned to preserve enzyme content and the resulting malt has both high extract and diastatic power. Distillers Malt will add malty, sweet flavours to the finished whisky. Our Distillers Malt is primarily suited to single malt distilling and can be used in conjunction with Gladfield’s Mild Peat Smoked or Manuka Smoked Malts if required.

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 Distillers 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. Our Manuka Smoked Malt can either be distilled or brewed.

This malt would impart a unique Kiwi flavour to an old German style beer like a Rauchbier or in any other beer style where a level of smokiness is required. We recommend our Manuka Smoked Malt can be used anywhere between 30% to 100% depending on the degree of smoke required.

This malt is also excellent when distilled, and imparts a smooth, natural smokiness with distinct Manuka notes to the finished whisky that is unique to New Zealand.

Mild Peat Smoked Malt

Our wonderful Distillers Malt is smoked in our in-house smoker using 100% New Zealand peat sourced from the South Island. The resulting malt is infused with a traditional mild, soft earthy flavour with phenols between 3 – 5ppm. This Malt is primarily suited for making single malt whisky but is also great when used to flavour Scotch ales or darker maltier beers.
