    Diageo launched a new 12-year-old single malt Scotch whisky, The Singleton Of Glen Ord in selected Asian markets back in 2006. Until now It has only been sold in Asia but now it is also available for visitors to Glen Ord Distillery itself. It will not be available elsewhere in the UK. The Singleton of Glen Ord is a rich, smooth-tasting, well-balanced whisky with distinctive packaging.

    Glen Ord Distillery was founded in 1838, making it one of the oldest in Scotland. Situated on the edge of the Black Isle, west of Inverness, Glen Ord continues to malt its own barley and to use the long fermentation and slow distillation methods followed there for generations. For the new Singleton of Glen Ord, a higher proportion of the liquid has been matured in European oak, delivering a rich, smooth-tasting, well-rounded style.

    The new single malt comes in a traditional 19th century-style blue glass flask with fresh, modern labelling with scripted lettering, a salmon emblem and back-label detail on the Glen Ord Distillery giving it strong visual presence.
