The Glen Ord distillery was founded in 1838 by the Mackenzies of Ord. At one time there was a dozen distilleries operating in this area of the Black Isle on the East coast of the Northern Highlands, from which Glen Ord is the only survivor. The Black Isle is noted for the cultivation of barley for malting. A new malting was built in 1968 to supply the 7 other distilleries of the group, amongst others Talisker on Isle of Skye. The maltings was then modernised in 1996.

Glen Ord whisky has been sold under several different names over the years including Glen Oran, Glen Ordie and Glen Ord. Only about 10% of the malt produced is sold as single malt, the remaining 90% is used in blends such as Johnnie Walker and Dewar's.
