The Dalmore launches first NFT with BlockBar

The Dalmore has partnered with NFT marketplace BlockBar to offer a limited edition set of The Dalmore Decades No.4 Collection.

The Dalmore Decades No. 4 Collection available via NFT is set to appeal to collectors looking to acquire a piece of history.

Bridging the physical and digital worlds for the first time in its 180 year old history, The Dalmore, owned by Whyte & Mackay, will benefit the buyer by guaranteeing authenticity and ownership verification, as well as offering a storage solution and handling insurance.

The Dalmore, private client director, Gerry Tosh said: “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 black collar and stopper and is displayed within one bespoke display pedestal, with individual compartments to house each decanter featuring each whisky’s story engraved upon the door.

In addition to the Collection the NFT owner will get to visit The Dalmore distillery and taste some of the rarest Dalmore whiskies in the warehouse, hand drawn from the cask followed by a sumptuous dinner.

Dov Falic, CEO of BlockBar added: “We’re delighted to be a part of this momentous occasion for Dalmore, as their first NFT launch partner. 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 7 December 2021 at 10am EST using a lottery mechanic.

A lobby will become available on 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 US$137,700 and can be purchased from Blockbar with Ethereum (ETH) or by credit card.
