Our Malts

The soul of beer and whisky

From award-winning beers to highly original and globally renowned whiskies, our malts are at the heart of some of the most innovative and successful brands on the market today.

Superior flavour

From base malts to speciality malts, our customers describe our products as giving “exceptional” and “superior” flavour, “depth, structure and integrity” and “fullness, body and rich malt flavour.” To one customer, we’re “the backbone” of everything he brews.

“ At Russian River we use multiple types of Simpsons Malt. They have a depth of flavour that enhances the mouthfeel on our beers, especially those that are lower in alcohol. Simpsons Malt have some of my favourite malts to brew with.”

Vinnie Cilurzo, Owner/Brewer, Russian River Brewing Company
