saunders’ malt extraCt
Our brand story begins back in the 1850s when William Saunders migrated from Britain to Melbourne, Australia. He was a ‘tallow chandler’, or candle maker, with no brewing experience. His father in law, however, was a ‘maltster’ in a brewery – they worked closely together to open a soda water manufacturing business in 1862. When, in 1873, William left the family business he became a brewer himself. Then based in Richmond, Melbourne, he developed the now iconic Saunders’ Malt Extract product.
