Single Farm Locally Grown English Barley
We believe that the highest quality barley produces the highest quality whisky. We travelled to many British farms in pursuit of the best possible barley, before choosing a single farm in nearby beautiful Hampshire. The county’s maritime climate is perfect for producing barley and Fordham & Allen, our farmer, sows and harvests the barley at the optimum times of the year.
We carefully select two-row spring barley, Concerto and Laureate, to produce our premium single malt whisky. These barley varieties deliver a high-level of extract and fermentability, which together provides the optimum level of predicted spirit yield and complex aromas.
One of Britain’s best soils
for growing barley
Barley is harvested when the grain is fully ripe and mature - this is when it becomes golden in colour
