A collaboration between agribusiness owners in Whitton in the NSW Riverina, the Malt House is designed to showcase the region’s produce in a fine-dining setting. “It’s really about being a regional tourism ambassador, being a platform for other businesses,” general manager Diana Williams says.
Located adjacent to Voyager Craft Malt, visitors can learn about grain production and the malting process while enjoying whiskies, craft beers and regional specialties that include sustainably fished Murray Cod.
Alongside the restaurant, the Malt House boasts villas, a sculpture park, a driving range and a lake for catch-and-release fishing. However, the Malt House is focused not only on providing a great tourist experience, but also in meeting emerging consumer demands by sharing the narrative behind high-quality, traceable produce.
“We’re very mindful of the traceability that we can bring to people,” Williams says. “People expect we will tell the story of their produce, and that story will meet their ethical standards.”
