BlockBar auctions ‘The Last Masterpiece 1970’ Japanese whisky NFT

The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.

BlockBar has just launched an NFT auction of the rarest whisky in the world. The 1/1 edition NFT features a 50-year-old Karuizawa that was distilled in 1970 and bottled in 2020. 

“The Last Masterpiece 1970” bottle features calligraphy artwork designed by Souun Takeda in the traditional Kanji style. The release aims to spread the beauty and uniqueness of Japanese culture. 

The auction lasts until July 18, 5 PM EST. The bidding starts at 69.09 ETH (approximately $75,000 at the time of writing). Users wishing to bid must have funds in their digital wallets connected to the BlockBar platform, or have wire pre-approval. 

BlockBar is an NFT marketplace specializing in luxury wines and spirits. The company works directly with top distilleries and worldwide brands. The platform features various non-fungible tokens corresponding to physical bottles from luxury liquor companies. NFT holders can choose to leave their bottles in BlockBar’s storage in Singapore or redeem the bottles immediately. 

In addition, BlockBar currently auctions Patrón Chairman’s Reserve in an edition of 4 and Monkey Shoulder NFTs in the edition of 811. The latter features BAYC-branded bottles of blended malt scotch whisky, available to claim for 0.20 ETH (approximately $215). Bored Ape Yacht Club holders can claim the NFT for free.

Among other NFT marketplaces that specialize in wines and spirits are Farandole, which launched on June 30, and Wine Bottle Club, which features limited-edition “Bitcoin” bottles.
