Distillery Production Methods
Traditional Dutch Windmills mill the malted barley that is used to produce Zuidam Malt Whisky. By using this method for milling for their malted barley the distillery helps preserve the important Dutch heritage of the world famous windmills. Even more importantly the traditional millstones of the windmills slowly grind the malted barley into flour. This traditional way of milling causes almost no increase in the temperature of the grain and thus helps preserve the wonderful aroma’s available from the malt.
