This Whisky Is Strapped With Blockchain Technology

A Peated Single-Malt for the New Millennium

By Hadley Tomicki ·

Maybe you’ve wondered about Blockchain technology.

What it is. How it might make you richer. The implications for our future. 

And more importantly, what it can do for your whisky.

Ailsa Bay answers that question. It’s a new whisky that employs Blockchain technology so you can source every moment the spirit has changed hands, right back to the day it was distilled.

Why a Blockchain whisky? Eh, why not. We’re talking about an uncommonly seen, peated Lowlands single-malt micro-aged in Hudson bourbon barrels here. So if they want to zap it with lasers or give it an adamantine skeleton, you’re not about to get in the way.

But the idea here is that every step of this dram's production is completely traceable. So all you have to do is scan the QR code to find out things like the cask type, and filling and bottling dates, all the way to its appearance in the store you eventually buy it in.

This also gives you the peace of mind that the widespread problem of bootlegging valuable whiskies is not an issue here. So you know your rare Scottish spirit was actually made in Scotland and not in, say... Saskatchewan.

Those sneaky western Canadians will stop at nothing.
