ROYAL SALUTE AND RICHARD QUINN RETURN THIS SEASON WITH A LIMITED EDITION HIGH-FASHION STYLE SCOTCH AND ONE-OFF NFT
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BLOCKBAR
BlockBar, the world’s first direct-to-consumer NFT marketplace for wines and spirits, will release a one-off non-fungible token (NFT) featuring edition #1 from the limited release, making it the first fashion collaboration NFT available on BlockBar.com.
Royal Salute, the master of exceptionally aged Scotch whisky, continues its collaboration with the rising star of British fashion, Richard Quinn, adding an enchanting high-fashion style expression to its Couture Collection; the Royal Salute House of Quinn by Richard Quinn. Unveiled ahead of London Fashion Week, the new and ultra-limited edition Scotch is the second expression to arise from the partnership between Royal Salute and Richard Quinn, and edition #1 from the limited collection of 200 crystal decanters will drop on BlockBar.com. Unique to this NFT, decanter #1 will be signed by Richard Quinn, making this a highly desirable collector’s item.
Inside the precious decanters, a bespoke new blend created by Royal Salute Master Blender Sandy Hyslop continues to support the Scotch’s leading position in the art of blending. The luxuriously smooth blended malt Scotch combines some of the finest and rarest malts from across Scotland, including some laid down in casks the birth year of Richard Quinn, and offers an enchanting flavour profile that is delicately floral and complemented by a lasting oakiness in a fitting tribute to the designer’s elegant yet daring style.
“We are delighted to drop Richard Quinn’s first-ever NFT whisky collaboration with Royal Salute. Culture is really important to BlockBar and we are excited to bring our community a drop which dovetails the two NFT worlds of luxury fashion and whisky” comments Dov Falic, CEO and co-founder of BlockBar.
Upon purchase of the NFT, the cryptographic version will be held securely by BlockBar, with a record of authenticity held on the blockchain as a digital certificate of ownership. The buyer may choose to redeem the physical product, and have it delivered from BlockBar’s secure storage facility, safely trade its NFT version within the BlockBar.com marketplace, keep in their virtual bar or gift the NFT through BlockBar’s new gifting platform.
The Royal Salute House of Quinn by Richard Quinn design was created exclusively by Richard Quinn for this expression and is a homage to his bold and colourful collections. Each individual hand-blown crystal decanter has been hand-painted with a bespoke floral design and elevated with gold leaf to finish the look. Housed in a stunning black box enhanced with tone-on-tone floral details, this release also includes a luxurious pocket square, designed and printed by Richard Quinn exclusively for Royal Salute. Capturing his signature duality in style, the 100% silk accessory takes inspiration from the bespoke floral print that adorns the decanters, in a balanced mix of blue and purple hues, off-set with a white thorned border.
