BEST Spelt Malt

BEST Spelt Malt will give your whisky a typical spelt note. It has very high enzyme levels and is also ideally suited to making multigrain whiskies. As spelt is only grown and processed in very few regions in Southern Germany, BEST Spelt Malt is a unique regional specialty of our maltsters.
For spelt whisky, multigrain whisky.
