Loughran Family Malt
Malt from the Land of Legends
Since 1908, six generations of the Loughran Family have farmed Clermont Farm, with 2015 seeing them grow their 107th crop of barley. Because their malts are grown on 1 farm they share standard planting & harvesting dates and experience a uniform crop management programme. This allows the Loughran Family to produce malts which are unmatched in terms of consistency of colour, extract and quality. They are also fully traceable right back to the actual field in which it was grown.
The rich and fertile soils of their farm, which help to produce the highest quality Irish malt, are situated near the foot of the Cooley Mountains. An area steeped in ancient Celtic mythology & legend. There is no other place in Ireland which can boast such a richness and diversity of myth and legend, of folklore and story. This is the land of the great Celtic warrior Cuchulainn who stained our soil forever-red with the blood of an invading hoarde. This is the home of the mystical Brown Bull of Cooley who enriched the soils of the land. His capture is told in the greatest epic story in Irish Celtic mythology The Tain, which is set in these lands.
