Tom Bryan

Chief Agronomist

Producing the highest quality malt means that we need a barley agronomy expert who is a stickler for detail and Tom’s the man who makes sure that every batch of Minch Malt barley is just as good as the last.

He’s our go-to guy for any technical agronomy issues that may affect the consistency of the malt in the early stages of sowing, spraying, harvesting, drying or storage, so if you want to know the minute detail of the growing process, he’s your man.

If you’d rather relax with a pint, his is a red ale or, if we’re talking whiskey, Scotch is his preferred. His favourite malt is ale malt from good old Taberna barley and he also likes Caramalt malt for the sweet biscuit aroma that it adds to a good craft beer.
