Glenfiddich Set to Release Extremely Rare Whisky as NFTs

BlockBar — the newly launched NFT marketplace for investable wine and spirits —  just unveiled its first big drop, which is in collaboration with Glenfiddich.

The collection is backed by 15 individually numbered 70cl Baccarat crystal bottles of extremely rare Armagnac Cask Finish single malt Scotch whisky, which has spent over four and a half decades in oak with a remarkable 20 years of secondary maturation. Each is vaulted and insured at a secure location and corresponds to an artistic impression in NFT form, which also acts as a certification of ownership and can be resold on the open market. At any time, the NFT holder can redeem the corresponding bottle via BlockBar, which will destroy the NFT.

The "peerless liquid" is set to launch on Oct. 19 with pricing at $18,000 USD per. Payment can be made via credit card, for the traditionalists, as well as with ETH.
