Whisky lovers have the opportunity to acquire an extremely limited-edition Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Port Dundas Master Set. To bring the Master Set to collectors globally, Johnnie Walker partnered with BlockBar.com (the world's first direct to consumer NFT marketplace for luxury wine and spirits) and Vayner3 (the Web3 consultancy under the umbrella VaynerX, founded by serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk).
The limited edition Johnnie Walker Ghost and Rare series is crafted using irreplaceable "ghost" whiskies and other incredibly rare expressions from the unparalleled Johnnie Walker reserves used to create the award-winning Johnnie Walker Blue Label. This latest release explores the character of exceptional and rare whiskies from one of world's most famous Grain Whisky distilleries, the Glasgow "ghost" distillery of Port Dundas.
The Master Sets feature a physical 1L bottle with signature by Master Blender Emma Walker; the NFT bottle (digital version of the bottle); a unique digital art piece by award-winning generative AI artist and photographer, Ivona Tau; and access to an exclusive virtual storytelling experience with Emma Walker and Ivona Tau where they will share their inspiration behind their respective masterpieces. Those who burn their NFT will have priority access to the next Diageo drop on BlockBar.com.
The 75 limited edition Ghost and Rare Port Dundas Master Sets will drop on BlockBar.com at 10AM ET on Friday, September 9. The NFT priced at $775 USD (approx. 0.51 ETH) may be purchased from BlockBar.com with ETH or credit card. At 10AM, the first users to reserve the bottle will then have 10 minutes to checkout. Users who successfully check out will receive an NFT (digital version) representing a proof of authenticity and ownership of the physical bottle, which is stored with BlockBar until the bottle owner is ready to "burn" the NFT to redeem.
