Golden Promise

Heritage Malt

Golden promise

Golden Promise is a classic British Spring barley that made its name as the varietal favoured by Scottish single malt distillers during the late 1960s. Golden Promise was renowned for its rich flavour. However, it fell out of favour with distillers as its spirit yield could not compete with the East German varieties that eventually replaced it. It produces a uniquely oily texture.
