Golden Promise gives beautiful mouthfeel to bring balance to beers with even the gutsiest hops and, when you drop the gravity for a session beer, you won’t lose out on body.

Golden Promise is a heritage barley variety that dates back to the 1960s, with that barley then malted to become Golden Promise malt. More than half a century on, it continues to thrive - particularly in the craft brewing sector - due to its exceptional brewhouse performance and flavour profile.

The Simpson family has always had a close connection with Golden Promise and, in 2015, we became the Plant Variety Rights holder for the variety. Today, our in-house agricultural merchanting division, McCreath Simpson & Prentice, is responsible for its maintenance and is dedicated to the variety’s sustainability and continued growth.
