Pot Ale Syrup

Pot Ale Syrup is a co-product liquid of the malt whisky distillery process that contains a highly nutritious blend of carbohydrates, yeast residues, proteins and minerals. It is highly palatable, enhances forage intake and provides a valuable source of dietary protein and energy for farm livestock.

A co-product from the manufacture of malt whisky, Pot Alt Syrup comprises mainly yeast cells and residues from malted barley after alcohol is distilled off the fermented wort by high temperature in copper stills. At several distilleries, Pot Ale Syrup is mixed back with the spent grains (Draff) resulting, after drying, in the production of Distillers Dark Grains.
