• Metacask and Macallan to auction ultra-rare whisky NFT

  • Metacask, a blockchain-based supplier of premium whisky, is gearing up for the single malt sale of the century. This hard liquor trading post will be conducting an “Angel Share NFT” auction in conjunction with Macallan.

    Back in 1991, John Connor beat the Terminator, Nirvana released Nevermind, and this cask began its aging process. Fast forward to 2021 and you have one of the best single malts on the planet. Resulting in an expertly matured sherry cask whisky of exceptional quality. So, next month it could be yours.

    The auction itself features around 500 litres of 30 year old Macallan, valued at over $2 million. Accompanied by a whisky-themed creation by the highly acclaimed artist Trevor Jones. This digital masterpiece is an audio-visual marvel inspired by the whisky heritage of Macallan. The artwork will serve as a deed of ownership for the single malt goldmine.

    Despite being 30 years old, this cask is destined to reach the mythical 50-year mark. As such, this purchase is definitely a long-term investment, and as such, McCallum is putting its faith in the blockchain to maintain the contract.

    Metacask will be auctioned through their own local marketplace from October 18-22. Furthermore, this sale will mark the official launch of the platform. After this, they will begin offering a variety of sales for whisky connoisseurs.
