My Favourites

Situated in the Wiltshire town of the same name, on the western tip of Salisbury Plain, the Pound Street maltings has been continuously making malt for the brewing industry since 1855. Not only that, in defiance of all the 20th century technology which completely overwhelmed the malting industry in the 1960’s, Warminster Malt is still made the traditional way, by hand, on floors, almost totally unchanged from the day the maltings was originally commissioned.

The complex of four Grade II listed malthouses are designed to enhance the slower, gentle process of modifying barley into malt – an original process which produces more pronounced flavours and a very special quality.
