The Dalmore has debuted its Decades No. 4 Collection of whisky as its first NFT. The four-piece collection will be released on BlockBar, an NFT marketplace for luxury wine and spirits.
Hand-selected by the company’s Master Distiller Richard Paterson, the collection contains four Decades whiskies from the years 1979, 1980, 1995 and 2000, all derived from a single malt.
Each decanter in the set comes with a black collar and stopper and is engraved with the whisky’s exclusive set number. The collection also includes a display pedestal with individual, engraved compartments to hold each decanter.
In addition to the whisky set and NFT, which are collectively valued at $137,700 USD, the buyer will also receive a private visit to The Dalmore’s distillery in Scotland. BlockBar will verify authenticity and ownership and store the whisky until the buyer opts to redeem it for the physical collection.
This release follows The Dalmore’s sale of its Decades No. 6 Collection in October, which went for $1.1 million USD at Sotheby’s Hong Kong.
The Dalmore Decades No.4 Collection will be released as an NFT at 10:00 am EDT/7:00 am PDT on Tuesday, December 7, using a lottery system. 30 minutes ahead of the release, a lobby will open on the BlockBar website and remain open until drop time.
One buyer will be randomly selected to be allowed to buy the NFT. Priced at $137,700 USD, the set can be purchased with either Ethereum or by credit card.
