- Muir Of Ord, Ross-shire
- United Kingdom
The Glen Ord distillery is the only remaining single malt scotch whisky distillery on the Black Isle. The distillery won awards for the best single malt at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in 1994 and 1996, and at the Monde Selection in 1996 and 1997.
The distillery closed its doors in 1939 due to World War II and they did not open again until 1946. In 2001 the distillery began using Biobed Modular Plant technology to treat wastewater with low chemical oxygen demand (COD) loads. The distillery was the first company in the United Kingdom to adopt such technology.
Today the distillery continues to produce Glen Ord whisky for Diageo. Glen Ord also doubles their distillery capacities by a big new building with several new wash and spirit stills in 2014.
