Ingredients are fundamental to the flavour of beer, and with Caledonia Best we are committed to ensuring that our most important ingredient, barley, will come only from Scottish farmers.
We only use 100% Scottish grain that can be traced back to the individual farmers who grew it for us. Every grain of barley has been planted, grown and harvested under Scottish skies.
In working with a maltster and farmers that we trust, we ensure the best possible quality of all our malting barley giving us a consistency in the taste and flavour of Caledonia Best, pint after pint.
” The barley in Scotland is consistently good, as we have the ideal climatic conditions- slightly cooler than further south, longer hours of daylight and our ground is ideal for growing malting barley. “

We’ve selected only the best hops to fuse with the rest of our superb ingredients.
“Hops have been in regular use as a beer-making ingredient for approximately 1,000 years. It gives beer its distinctive flavour and aroma, acts as a natural preservative, and is a key component in foam quality.”
