The Inverness site was originally chosen as an ideal location for a major malting facility to take advantage of the locally grown barley and supply malt directly into the surrounding distilleries in Speyside and Morayshire.

With its position close to the good harbour facilities at Inverness, the export of quality malt to brewers and distillers around the world can easily be accommodated.

  • The Inverness malting facility is split into two Plants with a production capacity of 45,000 tonnes.
  • Plant 1 comprises 10 SGKV boxes. These are used to steep, germinate and kiln without movement of the barley. Plant 1 also has the facility to produce Peated Malt.
  • Plant 2 is of similar design with 5 larger boxes, with a production capability of double the size of Plant 1.
  • The Inverness plant is also certified by the Organic Food Federation to produce Organic malt.
