Historically, Scottish malthouses used peat as the fuel for kiln-drying malt, which added a phenolic flavor to the dried malt. We continue this tradition in our modern malting plant in Scotland; where we control the introduction of peat smoke during the kilning phase. This gives our Premium Peated Distilling Malt the distinctive flavor that characterizes many of the west coast Scottish island whiskies.
