    Hello everyone,
    I’ve read somewhere today about “bere malt”. Apparently it is made from a very old variety, six-row barley, grown on a small scale on a number of Scottish islands. I’ve tried to find some for sale but couldn’t. Has anyone tried this malt, or anyone seen it for sale anywhere?

    Bruichladdich do a single malt whisky from bere barley. If I remember correctly, it's one of the earliest barleys in the British isles, imported by Vikings.
