Irish Distillers, the iconic global whiskey brand, has made its debut on BlockBar, the luxury spirits nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace.
It has been reported that their first release is Middleton Very Rare The Pinacle Vintage – the rarest bottle in the Middleton Very Rare collection. This exclusive drop will happen on February 28 at 10 am EST and one lucky buyer will benefit from a unique sensory experience.
However, the leading Web3 fine wine and spirits platform BlockBar will host its first Irish whiskey drop this month. Titled “Middleton Very Rare The Pinnacle Vintage,” this phygital launch is in fact an NFT linked to a rare physical whiskey bottle.
The report said that the new aroma combines the fourty annual Midleton Very Rare expressions topped with a portion distilled back in 1984. In terms of flavor, you can taste a fascinating blend between tropical fruits, dark chocolate, green tea and honey-drizzled figs. Of course, its bottle is just as impressive as the whiskey itself: a cut glass decanter carefully stored in BlockBar’s physical facility based in Singapore.
Likewise, this one-of-a-kind collectible will be available for purchase starting February 28th for a fixed price of $130,000 via the BlockBar NFT platform. Part of the sales will go to The Forest Genetic Resources Trust to support rare tree species in the Irish forsestry.
Master Distiller Kevin O’Gorman said:
“It is with great honour that we introduce Midleton Very Rare The Pinnacle Vintage. Crafted from a marriage of rare and storied expressions produced over the past forty years, and a treasured cask sample of single pot still whiskey distilled under Barry Crockett, Midleton Very Rare The Pinnacle Vintage is an Irish whiskey that can never again be replicated.”
