Whiskees NFTs are a hand-drawn collection of 10,000 NFTs with a realistic and unique design concept to show the many people, places, and ways to enjoy a glass or bottle. They highlight a person overlooking a variety of iconic landscapes from popular locations around the world gazing from an outdoor balcony and surrounded by their own personal versions of luxury as they kick-back, sip, and enjoy life. We want you to see yourself in a Whiskees NFT and bring a sense of connection from your life into our NFTs and the greater community!
Our team is a dedicated group of Cardano advocates that have been around since the 2018 HODL days. We are a collection of whiskey lovers, entrepreneurs, designers, and developers and have worked on some notable Cardano NFT projects and tools such as Aquafarmers and NMKR. Our vision is to bring real-world use cases to Cardano NFTs and we believe and are excited for the benefits and uniqueness Whiskees NFTs can provide to the Cardano community!

+ What are Whiskees NFTs?
Whiskees NFTs are a realistically fun and unique hand-drawn collection of 10,000 Cardano blockchain based artwork NFT’s. The artwork is inspired by a love and passion for all types of aged whiskeys, whiskies, or as we prefer… Whiskees and represents the many differences in locations, people, and ways to enjoy a glass or bottle. Whiskees NFTs are not only a fantastic collection of artwork, but also a way for NFT owners to have crowdfunding partial ownership in aging whiskey casks.
This offers real world utility to NFT owners for a highly desirable and unique asset and provides the opportunity, but not guarantees, for returns upon future whiskey cask sales which have traditionally appreciated between +15-20% increase per year. This return on your NFT investment would be paid in ADA directly to you as the NFT owner when the casks are sold at different time points after a community DAO vote.
- 50% of your NFT mint purchase goes to buying a unique piece of art.
- 50% of your NFT mint purchase will be used for crowdfunding ownership in aging whiskey casks.
+ Why own whiskey casks?
Whiskey or Whisky is a highly valuable dark distilled spirit that is made from a variety of grains, is placed into wooden barrel casks, and is aged for at least a few years. The aging process within the wooden cask imparts oak or wood flavors, darkens the liquor, and mellows out the harsh alcohol allowing for a smooth yet flavorful drinking experience that has been enjoyed and sought after for hundreds of years. As with other liquors, the longer the whiskey is barrel-aged the more valuable it becomes until it is bottled, sold, and consumed (HODL mentality).
The whiskey cask aging process creates rarity and also limits the supply of what is available from different distilleries for consumers to purchase at one time depending on when the whiskey is bottled from the cask.
Owning whiskey casks can be very lucrative as the contents only increase in value with every year it ages. Whiskey is a non-correlated good when compared to other things such as stocks, precious metals, or even crypto.

Our designer is insanely talented and was the lead and visionary for the amazing and creative Aquafarmers (LINK) Cardano NFT collection.
+ How will you select the casks?
Whiskees NFTs has partnered with whiskey experts to purchase the best and rarest Irish and Scotch whiskey casks available after the mint to provide the greatest benefit and value to Whiskees NFTs holders.
Selections will be made with planned cask holding periods of 3, 5, and 10 years and whiskey casks will be optimally selected to match these time points.
Additionally, the team will mint and hold cask specific utility NFTs and share an ADA wallet address where you’ll always be able to verify and see what casks are still held at any point in time for ultimate transparency.
+ What is the Whiskees NFTs ownership portion?
50% of your mint price in USD value will be used to crowdfund whiskey casks. As a Whiskees NFT holder your ownership will represent a percentage of all casks purchased from the mint. A table will be released after the sale to show the percentage per NFT.
You are now a partial owner of ALL casks purchased.
Whiskees NFTs holders will own 100% of the casks, the project team has 0% ownership.
+ What do we do with the casks?
The casks will be held and will continue to age, untouched and unsold, in government bonded and insured warehouses to meet the minimum of three years per Irish and Scottish aging requirements. The whiskey casks will acrue value and rarity the longer they age.
The whiskey casks are planned to be held for 3 years (⅓ of the casks), 5 years (⅓ of the casks), and 10 years (⅓ of the casks).
+ What happens after the 3 year aging requirement period?
After 3 years of aging ⅓ of the whiskey casks purchased and held will be voted on by Whiskees NFTs holders, similar to a DAO, to determine what happens with these casks.
The voting options are:
The NFT holder majority vote will determine the path forward for these whiskey casks.
As an NFT owner you get to help decide!
+ What is the ‘Keep’ option?
⅓ of the casks would be aged for an additional year to accrue value. Another vote would be held after an additional year of aging to ‘keep, sell, bottle’.
+ What is the ‘Sell’ option?
⅓ of the casks would be sold and all profits would be converted to ADA and distributed to Whiskees NFTs holders.
+ What is the ‘Bottle’ option?
⅓ of the casks would be bottled and sent to Whiskees NFTs holders with specially designed labels.
+ What happens after Year 3?
This process and voting repeats for ⅓ of the casks at 5 years and the remaining ⅓ of the casks at 10 years until all casks are eventually sold or bottled.
+ This sounds expensive… can I afford it?
Yes, we want to make Whiskees NFTs and the mint inclusive to all who are interested in the project, from the smallest ($) to the biggest ($$$$$$) future Whiskees NFTs holders.
You choose what works for you and your desired ownership!
+ Will there be rarity within Whiskees NFTs?
Yes, Whiskees NFTs will be created in 6 rarity tiers at descending price points to accommodate for all types of owners and Whiskees lovers:
- The 1% (1% of the collection, $$$$$$)
- Angels Share (2%, $$$$$)
- Master Distiller (5%, $$$$)
- Master Blender (15%, $$$)
- Maltman (28%, $$)
- Barrelman (49%, $)
No two Whiskees NFTs are the same and there will be additional rarity within each rarity tier based on a variety of unique features (Examples… cities, condo design, frames of some of your favorite Cardano NFTs, age statements, ABV%, etc…). Will you mint the NFT you want?
+ By owning certain rarity tiers are there any other benefits?
Yes, each rarity tier will have a few exclusive elements to them that will be released by the team at a later date before the mint sale. You ultimately decide what works for you and your desired Whiskees NFTs holding strategy, but the higher the rarity tier the more exclusives you may receive.
+ WEN MINT?
Right now the team is focused on building the community and finishing the artwork along with some technical details. We are planning to be ready for a Q1 2023 launch. A set date will be announced when we get closer.
The mint sale will take place on our website using NMKR.
+ Will there be a Whitelist?
Yes, we will be offering a whitelist and the whitelist sale that will happen at least 24 hours prior to the main sale. Details and how to get whitelisted are TBD. Please follow us on twitter and keep up-to-date on the discord channel. We have some fun giveaways and ideas to get your whitelist spots!
+ Will you be partnering or collaborating with other Cardano NFT projects?
Yes, we are currently talking to quite a few projects and working to have some collaborations and partnerships established. Stay tuned!
If you are a project interested in a collab / partnership just reach out to the team!
+ I still have questions, what do I do?
If you still have questions it’s best to post them in the #questions discord channel. A Whiskees NFTs team or community member will be able to answer or assist.
