Local people had been making whisky in Muir of Ord for hundreds of years, but it was Thomas Mackenzie of Ord who founded a legal distillery in 1838 to create local jobs and provide a ready market for local grain.

For generations Glen Ord was a secret delight among those who know its charm and because it is so sought after all of the Singleton of Glen Ord is exported to South East Asia.

Glen Ord is firmly rooted in the Black Isle sourcing its barley from local farmers and using the waters from two local lochs to produce this renowned whisky.
