Glen Ord distillery was build in 1838 and is the last remaining distillery in the Black Isle, a peninsula in the Scottish Highlands which was once a heartland of distillation, with both illicit and licenced distilleries operating in the area. It is one of the only distilleries which is self-sufficient in its malt requirements (the others being Roseisle and Springbank), and produces malt for all of Diageo's northern operations. Glen Ord has been available as a single malt since the 1980s, and has been bottled under many names, including Glenordie, Ordie, Ord, and Muir of Ord.
