Established in 1906 and located in the Netherlands, The Swaen has an exceptional heritage in the European malting process. For more than a century The Swaen has been sourcing the same high quality European barley as other German and Belgian maltsters. This allows production of premium quality malts for all types of beer, from pale lagers to dark ales, bitters and stouts. Their exceptionally high quality raw materials, technologically advanced facility, and long-held traditional expertise in producing flavor profiles that European maltsters have become known for make their malts highly desirable. The Swaen's focus is on base malts and a unique line of specialty malts through brands such as: Swaen© - Base Malts, GoldSwaen© - Caramel Malts and BlackSwaen© - Roasted Malts.
