The Black Isle, the region (not an island, despite the name) just north of Inverness where Glen Ord distillery stands, has long been renowned for its large crops of barley. At the time of Glen Ord’s foundation in 1838, the entirety of the Isle’s barley production was used for the production of whisky at 9 competitor distilleries, as it was the quickest and surest way of turning grain into cash.
