Glen Ord founded in 1838 on Clan Mackenzie land at Muir of Ord near Inverness. Glen Ord takes its pure water from mountain lochs and much of its rich barley from the Black Isle.

This pale yellow 23 year old reveals a leafy, lightly peated nose, a sweet, nutty palate and a full-bodied, soft style. A characterful Northern Highland malt, with an emphatic gingery finish.

Uitgebracht aanvang 2004 'Perilously Drinkable Whisky'.

Full-bodied, Glen Ord delightfully balances soft, sweet maltiness with a spicy, peat-smoked dryness.
Richly rounded from ageing in sherry casks, the deep flavour lasts on the palate and finishes long and smooth with emphatic hints of dry ginger.

Best Single Malt of the Year.
Glen Ord has won international recognition as one of the great Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.
Winner of a prestigious I W S C Gold Medal for two consecutive years and awarded the overall trophy: 'Best single malt up to 15 years old'.

'A lively, complex whisky'.

Smoky-sweet with a fresh, explosive finish, this rare old amber whisky from the Black Isle, north of Inverness, is far more lively than its 28 years might suggest. The barest hint of smokiness introduces fruity, fragrant aromas redolent of crusty bread baking. Medium to soft in body, it is firm, even assertive on the palate. Sweet honey and spice flavours pre¬dominate. It has a pleasing waxy viscosity when water is added.
An exiting finish. There's a striking freshness to the spicy, medium-lenght finish, in which an extraordinary profusion of sweet-and-sour flavours bursts on the palate.

Rich, sweetly fruity and scented malt with good balance. A fine example of the old-fashioned Highland style; an excellent all-pupose malt.
'A rounded complex whisky'
Fruity and sweet with fine balance, this rare old amber whisky from the Black Isle is smooth, subtly complex and self-assured.
Fragrant hints of spice and smoke introduce rich, fruity aromas.
Medium-soft in body, it is sweetly rich-tectured, later drying on the palate.
Flavours of sweet honey, citrus and spicy ginger develop to yield a light nutt-ness on the lemony finish.

lease as a Society bottling.

are selected, true to our motto: “TO LEAVE NO NOSE UPTURNED “.

Abaked bscuits, pineapple, strawberry then airfix glue and balsa wood. Fizzy freshness
and bitter greengages, grapefruit and quinine. Fruity strawberry daiquiri with vanilla
cookie dough, then pine sap and peppermint. Deliciously creamy with spicy wood
savings. A nippy sweety!

The panel found the nose sweet at first with baked biscuits, pineapple, strawberry and
summer florals. A curious but good note of airfix glue and balsa wood emerged with
a fizzy bicarbonate of soda freshness. At full strenght it packed a punch: they found bitter green gages, grapefruit, quinine and tinned pineapple. A slug of water sweetened up
proceedings exceedingly well. Our panelists embraced the juicy sweetness of fruity
strawberry daiquiri with vanilla cookie dough. Green notes of pine sap and peppermint,
laced with hints of anniseed. More of the same deliciousness with spicy wood shavings
and orris root.

Juicy fruit chewing gum, mint toffees and orange flavoured toothpaste were replaced
by sweet porridge aromas neat, whilst in the taste we discovered spicy eggnog. Water
added poached pears and Portuguese custard tarts. This whisky previously inhabited
an ex – Bourbon hogshead.

A slight artificial sweet and minty aroma greeted the Panel on the nose neat, like a juicy
fruit chewing gum, mint toffees or kid’s orange flavoured toothpaste. With time turning
deeper and richer and we got the satisfying scent of sweet porridge with orange, maple
and pecan.

The taste was both, sweet creamy apple and oat puree, and eggnog with cinnamon, nutmeg and rum.

Water added doughnuts, poached pears and marshmallows and the pleasant texture of
yummy Portuguese custard tarts. After 13 years in a ex – Bourbon hogshead, we trans –
ferred this whisky directly into a Sauternes cask for the remainder of its maturation.

eerder ook wel uitgebracht onder de namen Muir of Ord, Ord, Glen Oran en Glenordie.
Muir of Ord, Ross-shire. Licentiehouder: John Dewar & Sons Ltd, Perth. Onderdeel van Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd. De Malt divisie van United Distillers Ltd. Het eigendom van Guinness.
Gesticht in 1838 door een coöperatie van tien landbouwboeren die op deze wijze een hogere opbrengst dachten te krijgen van de door hun verbouwde gerst.
Er waren tien distilleerderijen in bedrijf, waarvan negen deel uitmaakten van een coöperatie.
De eerste licentiehouders waren Robert Johnstone en Donald McLennan, die handelden als Ord Distillery Co.
In 1843 was Johnstone betrokken bij een bankroet en in 1871 overkwam McLennan het-zelfde.
De zaken werden voortgezet door de weduwe van McLennan die wat later een bankman trouwde uit Beauly, Alexander McKenzie.
In 1887, toen Alfred Barnard de distilleerderij bezocht werd er 207,600 liter (80.000 gallans) whisky per jaar geproduceerd en verkocht in Leith, Londen, Singapore, Zuid - Afrika en andere kolonies.
De merknaam was toen Glen Oran.
De eigenaar van Ord Estate verkocht de distilleerderij in 1896 aan James Watson & Co, Ltd, whiskyblenders te Dundee.
James Watson was al in het bezit van Pulteney en Parkmore en hij investeerde fors in Glen Ord.
Glen Ord was gesloten van 1917 tot 1919.
Watson ging, net als zoveel andere whiskyfirma's in liquidatie, omdat dat profijtelijker was dan door te gaan.
In 1923 werd John Dewar & Sons Ltd, whiskyblenders te Perth eigenaar van de distilleerderij, en in 1930 werd Glen Ord na het samengaan met de Distillers Company Ltd (D.C.L). onderdeel van Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd.
Gedurende de tweede wereldoorlog was Glen Ord weer gesloten.
Tot 1949 was bestond de verlichting van de distilleerderij uit parafine lampen, toen werd men aangesloten op het electricieteits net.
Totdan was een waterturbine de belangrijkste krachtbron.
In 1958 werden in de distilleerderij experimenten uitgevoerd met verschillende vormen van het stoken van de stills, kolen, direkt en inderekt, en olie.
In 1968 werd een grote trommelmouterij gebouwd die ook de andere distilleerderjen van de groep in het noorden van Schotland en Talisker op Skye van mout voorzien.

Het water komt van Loch Nan Eun en Loch Nam Bonnach, twee meren die worden gevoed door water afkomstig van de omliggende heuvels.
Op het etiket van de flessen met whisky staat 'I Shine Not Burn', de slogan van Clan McKenzie, wat betekent: Ik straal. maar brand niet.
Het meeste van deze malt gaat in de Johnnie Walker blends. Ongeveer 10 % wordt als single malt whisky gebotteld.
Men produceert ongeveer 3 miljoen liter whisky per jaar. Het water komt van Loch nam Bonnach en Loch nam Euan. De Mash tun is 12 ton. De acht Wash backs zijn elk 60.000 liter.
De drie Wash stills zijn elk 17.000 liter, de Spirit stills, ook drie, zijn elk groot 16.000 liter en worden met stoom verhit.
Guinness nam Arthur Bell & Sons Ltd in 1986 over en in 1987 The Distillers Company Ltd. (D.C.L.). Beiden tegen hun zin. In 1988 werden beide groepen van bedrijven samengevoegd en de nieuwe naam werd United Distillers Limited.
Op 12 Mei 1997 staakt de Fransman Bernard Arnault van L M V H zijn verzet tegen de fusie voor een afkoopsom van ƒ 800.000.000.
De nieuwe naam van de gefuseerden zou eerst G M G Brands worden maar op 22 October werd bekend dat de naam Diageo zou worden, afgeleid van het Latijnse woord voor dag en het Griekse woord voor wereld.
Diageo wordt het grootste drankenconcern ter wereld, groter dan Seagram en Allied Domecq samen met een omzet van 40 miljard gulden.
Op 28 Maart 1998 verkoopt Diageo het whiskymerk Dewar's en het ginmerk Bombay voor E 1,15 miljard aan Bacardi Martini. Het afstoten van de twee merken was een voorwaarden die door de Amerikaanse mededingingsautoriteiten was gesteld aan de goedkeuring van de fusie tussen Guinness en Grand Metropolitan.
Dewar's heeft een omzet van ruim één miljard gulden en een marktaandeel van 10 %. Het merk is marktleider in de V.S.
Diageo is de overkoepelende naam voor vier ondernemingen: United Distillers & Vintners, (U.D.V.), Pilsbury, Guinness en Burger King.
Onderdeel van de verkoop houdt ook in de overname van de distilleerderijen Aberfeldy, Aultmore, Craigellachie en Royal Brackla door Bacardi Martini.
Balmenach wordt in December 1997 verkocht aan Inver House.

October 2005
Diageo has announced that its 2005 Annual Rare Malts Selection will be the last.
The collection will consist of four cask strenght single malts from closed distilleries; Glen Mhor 28 years old, Millburn 35 years old, Glendullan 26 years old and Linkwood 30 years old.
Dr. Nicholas Morgan, global malts marketing director commented: 'As the Special Releases are now well established, it makes less sence to continue selecting and promoting a parallel series of Rare Malts with his own separate indentity'.
In future, all premium and rare whiskies will be made available in the annual Special Releases series.

Juni 2006

Diageo brengt een nieuwe 12 jaar oude single malt whisky uit van de Glen Ord distileerderij: The Singleton of Glen Ord.
Deze whisky wordt uitgebracht in Korea, Taiwan, Philipijnen en Thailand.
Waarschijnlijk volgt wat later een 18 jaar oude met dezelfde naam

October 2012
Diageo announces that it has applied for planning permission to double the capacity of Glen Ord distillery.

Installing 6 stills and 10 wash backs will increase the output to 10.000.000 litres of pure akcohol at a cost of 25.000.000 pound.

April 2013
Diageo has named Teaninich near Alness as the location for its plans to build a new 50 million pound new malt
whisky distillery and will be adjacent the existing Teaninich distillery
but will have its own name and indentity and will have the capacity to produce 13 million
litres of spirit p[er annum from its 16 stills.

Diageo also invest 12 million pound in expanding the Teaninich distillery to almost doubless capacity.

The site will also feature a bioenergy plant.

The work will begin in 2014.

Diageo also will invest in Mortlach distillery in building a new still house and an other invest-
ment will be at Glendullan distillery to process co products in an anaerobic digestion process,
producing biogas which will be used to power the Glendullan distillery.

There are also expansion and upgrade developments for more then 40 million pound in
Linkwood, Mannochmore, Glendullan, Dailuaine, Benrinnes, Inchgower, Cragganmore,
Glen Elgin, Glen Ord and in a new bio - energie plants in Glenlossie and Dailuaine.

‘Green grassy’ is one of Diageo’s main new make aroma camps and Glen Ord is it at its most intense.

The aroma of Glen Ord’s new make spirit – which smells like a freshly cut lawn – is created by having clear wort, long fermentation, a high cut point and copper rich distillation. By keeping the water in the shell and tube condensers hot the ‘conversation’ between vapour and copper is extended. The actual condensing takes place in after-coolers. A sweet toffee undertone, and gingery spice are added through maturation when the low levels of peat smoke also reveal themselves.

The Singleton

The Black Isle was noted for being the site of Ferintosh, the four-strong distillery site which the Forbes family was allowed to operate on a dry free basis from 1688 to 1784 as a reward for supporting the Hanoverian kings. By the early 19th century, it had become the heartland of distillation, with moonshiners sharing the land with nine licensed sites.

The distillery at Muir of Ord was built later, in 1838, by the local laird Thomas MacKenzie, who then leased it out to a succession of owners who ran it with varying degrees of success. Things stabilised in 1896 when the Dundee-based blenders Jas. Watson took charge and expanded the site. Watson’s then sold it on to Dewar’s in 1923 and two years later was absorbed into the greater DCL (Diageo) estate.

It is one of only three distilleries currently which are self-sufficient in their malt requirements [the others are Roseisle and Springbank]. Its original floor maltings were replaced with Saladin boxes in 1961, which in turn were removed when the large drum maltings was built in 1968. Today it produces malt for all of Diageo’s northern plants, Talisker and, on occasion, makes heavily peated malt for Islay.

A recent rise in demand (from blenders and as single malt) has seen Glen Ord expanding twice. The first phase saw capacity rise to 5m LPA and a second (completed in 2014) saw that double to 10m LPA.

It has been available as single malt since the 1980s, although under a confusion of different names: Glen Ord, Glenordie, Ordie, Ord, and Muir of Ord. Diageo has now plumped for Singleton of Glen Ord and is promoting it heavily in the Asian market.
