About Viking Malt

In the north, nature’s conditions are different. The hard winter, short growing season and the endless sunlight of the summer make northern barley and malt truly distinctive. A beer or whiskey has to have character, and so does the malt. The path to greatness is not always the easiest one.

We are deeply passionate about malting and our maltsters are well versed in the long traditions of brewing. We seek to constantly experiment with new methods – as well as rediscover old ones.

We are on a journey through the world of malt and beer, and we want you to come along. Tell us how we can help you make beers and whiskies that people tell stories about.

In 2016 Viking Malt and Danish Malting Group joined forces to better serve their customers. Now the new Viking Malt is the leading malting company in Northern Europe and supply raw materials and services to the global brewing, distilling and food industries.

Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in area where our distinctive Nordic barley is sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The annual malting capacity is close to 600 k tn.
