Glen Ord 12 Year Old Peter Dawson early 1980s
Glen Ord is a well-respected distillery, sought after as a single malt and by blenders alike. The distillery operates its own in-house maltings, which supply all of Diageo's northern distilleries, as well as Talisker and occasionally heavily-peated malt for the Islay sites. Glen Ord was first officially bottled as a single malt in the 1980s, but has had a bounty of different names over the years; Glen Ord, Glenordie, Ordie, Ord, and Muir of Ord. It is currently part of the Singleton stable.
This is a bottle of the long serving 12 year old age-statement. Bottled by Peter Dawson, a blending company that had an interest in Towiemore, Balmenach and Convalmore distilleries and, also briefly owned the Auchnaghie distillery outside Pitlochry. Glen Ord was actually owned by John Dewar & Sons, but when both blenders became part of DCL in 1925, the license to bottle Glen Ord single malt was granted to Peter Dawson, only returning to Dewar's in 1982, who remarketed it as Glenordie.
