Scotch Whisky is known the world-over by the Brand names of large blending companies. These blends are the mixture of the products of various distilleries which were originally independent family owned units. Until the middle of the 20th century there were many small firms that bottled and sold the pure product of the local distilleries. Since Victorian times the firm of William Cadenhead has provided this service. However a diminution of public interest caused the small bottling companies to close down. Only a small handful of distilleries still remain in the ownership of their founding families and even fewer of the bottling companies remain active, William Cadenhead is one of the notable survivors.
Recent revival of interest in the whisky from different single distilleries has caused a surge of new firms to emerge. Many do not actually control their bottling operations and unfortunately feel it necessary to invest fictitious ancestries. However William Cadenhead has a well established pedigree and the experience of over one and a half centuries ensures that our customers can truly rely on what we put in a bottle. They guarantee that they never chill-filter or chemically alter the products that they bottle nor do they add colouring agents. Each of their bottlings of whisky, and indeed of their rums and cognacs, comes from an individually selected cask.
The Glen Ord Distillery or also known as The Singleton of Glen Ord is a distillery in the Highland region of Scotland. It is the only remaining single malt producing distillery on the Black Isle. The distillery won awards in 1994 and 1996 for the best single malt at the International Wine & Spirits Competition and also at the Monde Selection in 1996 and 1997. Boasting 7 wash stills and 7 spirits stills the output is a huge 11,500,00 litres of spirit each year used in Diageo blends mostly but also available as single malt.
This single malt whisky was distilled in 2005 at the Glen Ord Distillery before being placed in a Bourbon hogshead and and a Sherry Butt and left to mature for no less than 13 years. It was bottled in 2018 at 56.5% ABV as part of the Cadenhead small batch offerings. Only 954 bottles were made available to the world with few remaining.
