Patagonia Malt comes from Chile. Barley is grown and malted with unique soil and weather conditions, between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, to create unmatchable flavor. Unique climate conditions of the central-south zones of Chile, characterized by a cold and rainy weather, create an environment for exceptional barley growing.
Founded in 1896, Patagonia Malt leads in the Latin American Pacific Coast Malt Market and keep increasing quality recognition among craft brewers worldwide.
Today Patagonia Malt grows Barke, Sebastian and Scarlett barley varieties. All malts originated from Europe, but have been adapted to the Chilean soil and climate. Patagonia Malt has complete control and traceability from the barley seed to the final product, with special care for the purities of each variety. Their agricultural R+D department is also constantly exploring how new varieties behave in their unique conditions.
Patagonia Malts have unique flavors and characteristics. They keep innovating in order to bring you more alternatives so that you can craft a new kind of beer.
Barley steeping and germination conditions are carefully monitored to achieve even germination and homogenous malting. Following kilning, our malted barley possesses quality and color comparable with the finest malts, though with a unique aroma and taste from Chilean Terroir.
