In 2007, the Diageo group launched a new range of single malts under the generic name “The Singleton”. Owners of the Glen Ord distillery, a 12 year old version of its single malt was released on the Asian market, while Glendullan was launched in the USA, and Dufftown in Europe. This version of Glen Ord was then followed by two other releases in the 90s and at the beginning of the millennium. With a production capacity of five million litres of pure spirit every year, Glen Ord is one of the largest distilleries in Scotland. Its malt makes an essential contribution to the blends Johnnie Walker and Dewars.
