|Type: Distilling (Scotland)||Pedigree: Concerto x Publican|
- Added to the Recommended List last year KWS Sassy has been under evaluation for Distilling and now carries Malting Barley Committee (MBC) approval for Distilling.
- Agrii trials data has put yields some way above Concerto but not quite at the level of Laureate in Scotland and on a UK basis, although AHDB has the performance closer together in the North. Sassy does produce grain of a better specific weight and low screening losses.
- Tall straw of a similar height to Concerto but like Concerto a bit weaker than average. Disease resistance likewise is similar to Concerto but a little better on Rhynchosporium. Brackling resistance is lower than average.
