Blockchain based purveyors of fine whisky, Metacask, are getting ready for the single malt sale of the century. The hard liquor trading post, in association with Macallan will conduct an auction of “The Angel Share NFT”.
Back in 1991, John Connor defeated the terminator, Nirvana released Nevermind, and this cask began its aging process. Fast forward to 2021, and you have one of the finest single malts on the planet. Resulting in an expertly matured sherry cask whisky of exceptional quality. Consequently, next month it could be yours.
The auction itself features around 500 litres of 30-year-old Macallan, valued at over $2 million dollars. Accompanied by a whisky-themed creation by much lauded artist, Trevor Jones. The digital masterpiece is an audio-visual wonder inspired by Macallan’s whisky heritage. This artwork will double as a deed of ownership to the single malt goldmine.
