Malt 2.0 Released by Bairds Malt

Inverness, United Kingdom — Malt 2.0 has been launched by Bairds Malt to showcase the development of malt produced using new barley varieties introduced to the UK through the Early Evaluation Programme. The Early Evaluation Programme is a trial program run by Bairds and our merchanting partners (Scotgrain Agriculture) to help identify and evaluate new barley varieties for introduction into the UK market. New varieties are grown each year in different trial plots, with micro malting then undertaken by Bairds to test the suitability of each crop for introduction on a commercial scale. Malt 2.0 is the first new malt to be produced from the Sassy barley variety, a new variety that has shown great promise as a preferred barley variety for future harvests.
