Manuka Smoked Malt

Base/Distill 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 1% 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.

Use: Suitable for single malt distilling and brewing where a unique Manuka smoke characteristic is required.
If distilling single malt whisky please use at 100% rate.

Rate: Between 1% to 100%

Packaging options: 1kg, 5kg, 25kg.

Shelf life: At least one year when stored properly in dry conditions.
