This terroir malt is produced from premium Eraclea barley grown near the Adriatic Sea northeast of Venice. It has a noticeable malty-sweet aroma with notes of honey. 

The origin of Eraclea Malt

Saatgut Breun developed Eraclea Malt in Bavaria Germany through selective breeding in the 1970’s.  Eraclea is 2-row winter barley that does not do well in the humid growing conditions typical of Bavaria.  This barley variety prefers arid conditions and has the important ability of being able to store humidity to sustain growth during the emergence phase.  The terroir of Italy’s Adriatic coast offers perfect conditions for Eraclea Pilsner Malt to flourish, with long sunny days and dry conditions encouraging its growth.
