The basics

Glen Ord Distillery produces a 12-year-old, 15-year-old, and 18-year-old single malt whisky called The Singleton of Glen Ord. Each is slowly batch distilled and matured in fine European and American oak casks. The Singleton of Glen Ord Signature Sherry Cask is firstly matured in European and American oak casks before a secondary maturation in European oak ex-sherry casks. As is tradition, at the end of the tour you’ll get to enjoy a single malt tasting or two. As you sip, you’ll learn how to compare and identify the flavors in whisky.

Visits to the distillery are often included in tours of the Highlands, making a great way to combine sightseeing with whisky tasting. To get a taste of the diversity of Scotland’s whiskies, it’s a good idea to book a guided tour that includes visits to several different distilleries in one day. This also lets you avoid the worry of assigning a designated driver.
