Glenfiddich whisky makers, one of the world’s top Single Malt Scotch Whisky brands, has partnered with BlockBar, the premier non-fungible token (NFT) marketplace for luxury wine and spirits products, to launch a series of 15 limited edition liquor NFTs.

The tokens are offered exclusively through BlockBar’s innovative NFT platform, which enables Glenfiddich whisky makers to digitize and sell exclusive spirits products as NFTs directly to consumers, whether for personal consumption, collecting, or investment purposes.
Benefits of purchasing Glenfiddich whisky NFT
Upon purchasing the NFT, the buyer can then become the owner of the real-world physical product represented by the NFT, with the NFT serving as a digital receipt that verifies the buyer’s ownership and the authenticity of the product.
The buyer has the choice at any time to resell or transfer the NFT through the BlockBar platform or to redeem it for the physical version.
The benefits of purchase doesn’t stop there; BlockBar is also responsible for storing the product and, upon request, delivering it to the buyer.
“This is an exceptionally rare example of 1973 Glenfiddich, a 46-year-old whisky which has spent more than two decades in an Armagnac cask and is a fitting spirit for the launch of Glenfiddich’s first and exclusive NFT release on BlockBar,” Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman said.
The first series of Glenfiddich NFTs will launch on October 19, 2021, on a first-come, first-served basis. Buyers may purchase the NFTs from Blockbar with Ethereum (ETH) or by credit card.
