Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Whisky based cryptocurrency

In March, the “world’s first” whisky-based cryptocurrency, called Cask Coin, launched, giving investors the chance to own a share of a £40 million Scotch whisky portfolio by investing in its digital coins.

Described as an “asset backed cryptocurrency combining blockchain technology with a physical asset investment in the form of maturing Scotch Whisky”, CaskCoin was founded by Ricky Christie – the boss of the North of Scotland Distilling Company.

Each coin translates to physical ownership of a share in every cask of maturing whisky in the portfolio, which the company says includes old and rare malts aged between 21 and 50 years.
