Six-row Bere is Britain’s oldest strain of cultivated cereal. Some believe it was brought to the Hebrides by Norse invaders but it may have been here in the Neolithic, some 5,000 years ago.

Bere is a hardy and resilient grain, adapted to poor soil conditions and a short growing season with long hours of daylight. Yields are low and the grain proved difficult to mill. The dense grist was to break our Victorian equipment when we first tried to mash it. But the results speak for themselves.

Palate: A light, refreshing mouth feel with brown sugar, vanilla and lemon peels. Very subtle hints of sea breeze.

Finish: Clean, refreshing qualities continue through the finish.
