The variety Maris Otter was bred and developed in the 1960’s by Dr GDH Bell at the Plant Breeding
Institute in Cambridge by crossing the varieties Proctor and Pioneer and has become one of the most
enduring malting varieties in the history of modern barley cultivation.
Maris Otter has been grown for malting for more than 45 years and its pedigree and track record of
delivering, year after year, consistent, processable and flavoursome malt is unsurpassed.
Crisp Malting Maris Otter is grown under contact by selected Norfolk farmers and is recognised worldwide
as the benchmark barley for the best ale malt. In malting, as with brewing, the importance and the quality
of raw materials cannot be underestimated.
The reliability of Maris Otter malt quality has allowed brewers to develop, stabilise and maintain many of
the world famous English cask conditioned ale brands we know today.
