Managing Director Richard Smith says ”The True Taste of Dartmoor, we try to source our materials locally as we are committed to using Dartmoor barley grown by Tim Cox who farms at Drewsteighton to the North East of Dartmoor. His land is relatively sheltered in the “Dartmoor Shadow” and has a mix of clays and grit ,one of the few areas on Dartmoor capable of growing grain to the high standards demanded by maltsters. We use Tuckers Maltings in Newton Abbot who were established in 1831 at Ashburton, who have been producing floor malted barley since 1900 at their current Malthouse in Newton Abbot. They are one of only four malt houses in the country producing malt in this traditional way and the brewery is fortunate to have them so near. The other ingredient is our people and the passion our brewing team have for making consistent great tasting beer. This and our location in the Dartmoor National Park bring the true taste of Dartmoor to every pint we produce.”
