Malt is partially germinated cereal grains that have been dried in a process known as “malting”. Typically these grains are rice or barley, both of which Sasma supplies. The grains are forced to begin germinating by soaking in water, then halted from germinating further by drying with hot air. This process breaks down complex sugars in malt, preparing it for fermentation. Malt base alcohol has been stripped of its malt qualities giving it a neutral taste and makes it perfect for hard seltzers or other Ready-to-Drink beverages. Our Neutral Malt Base comes in a range of proofs between 16 ½ and 17 ½%.
Malt based alcohol has price advantages, taxed at a fraction of Spirits. Buying Neutral Malt Base alcohol opens other distribution channels that are not licensed to buy spirits such as supermarkets and sports and music venues. Inquire today!
