Embracing the future is the way to go for all brands and The Dalmore is similarly combining the physical and digital worlds in its 180-year-old history by launching its first-ever NFT. The Dalmore will be digitizing and selling the Decades Collection (4 piece collection), through BlockBar directly to a buyer that also brings additional experiences including a private distillery visit. The collection and NFT are valued at $137,700 USD. They have partnered with BlockBar, a non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace for luxury wine and spirits, to offer a limited edition liquor NFT with a set of The Dalmore Decades No.4 Collection. This will be the only set within the Dalmore Decades selection that will correspond to a digital NFT. This asset-backed NFT from the BlockBar platform brings authenticity and ownership verification, as well as offering a storage solution and handling insurance.
Private Client Director, The Dalmore, Gerry Tosh shares, “The Dalmore offers some of Scotland’s most rare and precious whisky stocks, remarkable in their desirability to collectors, investors, and drinkers alike. The Dalmore Decades selection is a truly outstanding example of this, and with the landmark auction of The Dalmore Decades No.6 Collection last month setting new records, the No.4 Collection offered as an exclusive NFT signifies a fantastic opportunity for the crypto-curious to explore single malt whisky as an investment.”
One of 25 covetable sets, this No.4 Collection, set No.21, contains four Decades whiskies (1979, 1980, 1995, 2000), hand-selected by Master Distiller Richard Paterson, from a single malt that celebrates The Dalmore’s longstanding relationship with the titan of sherry making, González Byass, to the first Scotch created in the new Millennium. Each decanter in the collection is engraved with an exclusive set number and a black collar and stopper. Each set is displayed within one bespoke display pedestal, with individual compartments to house each decanter, and with each whisky’s unique story engraved upon the door.
In addition to the Collection, the NFT owner will receive an opportunity to visit The Dalmore distillery, nestled in the Highlands of Scotland.
“We’re delighted to be a part of this momentous occasion for Dalmore, as their first NFT launch partner”, says Dov Falic, CEO of BlockBar “Through transparency, authenticity, and quality assurance, BlockBar is able to bring a solution to the current hurdles in the luxury spirits market, and we’re excited to partner with The Dalmore to make that happen.”
The Dalmore Decades No.4 Collection will be offered via NFT on 7th December 2021 at 10:00 am EST using a lottery mechanic. A lobby will become available on BlockBar.com 30 minutes ahead of the drop, whereby to enter, prospective buyers must have one ETH in their metamask wallet. The lobby will close at the drop time with one buyer randomly selected with the ability to purchase. The set will be available for $137,700 USD and can be purchased from Block bar with Ethereum (ETH) or by credit card.
