Barley Growers And Maltsters Do Deal

A NEW agreement involving 16 farmers who will supply their barley exclusively to Morrison Bowmore distillers has been unveiled.

Simpsons Malt of Berwick will act as agents for the distillers, agreeing contracts with the growers at the start of the season.

Morrison Bowmore believes it will benefit from closer relationships with both maltster and farmers, ensuring high levels of quality control. It says farmers will benefit by having a guaranteed home for barley produced.

The 16 growers selected so far, all from the Borders, will produce 2500 tonnes of barley for Simpsons to malt.
