There may appear to be only two main ingredients used to craft The Swaen Malts: the very best barley and the purest water. Yet there is also a secret ingredient; the talent of our people. Creating a great malt is a careful, skilled process and here in the heart of Sealand Flanders, we have developed the skills and traditions of roasting & malting to create the finest malts.
Jos Haeck – Master brewer & Maltster
For more than a century our Malthouse has been producing premium quality malt for all types of beer, from pale lagers through to dark ales, bitters and stouts. Our exceptionally high quality raw materials, technologically advanced facility, and long-held traditional expertise make our malts highly desirable.
Since 1906 The Swaen has been investing in the latest techniques and production methodologies. We now have one of the most modern and advanced facilities in the industry, from storage, through to steeping, germination, kilning and roasting, ensuring consistently high quality malts for your beers.
With more than a century’s experience, we are the ideal partners to the malt milling industry, providing a professional grain selection, germination, kilning and roasting service to deliver the best malts for third-party milling.
At The Swaen we are experts in sourcing the best quality barley, wheat and rye. Using our bespoke, advanced germination/ and kilning and probably the most environmentally sensitive roasting system, we are able to offer the very finest quality malt for the milling industry.
Malt is a fundamental ingredient in many foods, essential for a satisfying taste and texture. Yet to achieve the best results you need to use a high quality malt.
Our range includes malts for applications within the food industry. The Swaen is an established supplier to food manufacturers, creating and developing specialist malts that meet the specific needs of the industry.
