The world of fine wine can be a tricky one, not least because seeking out the best bottles to buy – whether it's to drink now or put down in the cellar for later – can be a difficult, time-consuming task. That's where Crurated steps in. Launched in 2021, Crurated is a game-changer in granting insider access to some of the world's most highly-revered wine brands, including Domaine Arnoux-Lachaux, Domaine Dujac and Robert Groffier. It is the first blockchain-based high-quality wine-community that certifies the provenance of every bottle it sells with an NFT (that's non-fungible token to you and I).
Built on a membership structure, Crurated does the searching for you, curating rare bottles and barrels from some of the world's best producers to purchase. What you get depends on the membership tier you opt for – currently, there are four different memberships, starting from complimentary explorer options, increasing to various levels of paid membership; as well as a ‘shop’ section on the website, which is accessible to all.
The different membership types come with additional benefits, including being able to store hundreds of bottles of recently acquired fine wine, or access to rare vintages, invitation-only events and bespoke services. Trust is at the core of the community, with cutting-edge technology and impeccable storage systems, members can rest assured that their purchases will reach them in perfect condition with a unique blockchain code, which provides transparency and asset value protection. There's a whole world of access to be discovered with your membership, including special events and insider access to one-off products and expert advice, with tiers beginning from a free membership which offers you access to shop the site.
This month they've announced they're expanding their repertoire into the fine spirits section. Know your Glenturrets from your Glenmorangies but don't quite know how to dip your toe into the whisky investment business? Enamoured with rum and want to get your hands on some of the finest aged bottles? The team at Crurated will have you covered.
Working with world renowned brands and up and coming players within the industry, the release calendar includes; Maison Lineti, a Samaroli bottling of The Macallan, The Glenturret, Royal Salute, Camus, Dictador, and Ballantine’s, all within the first half of 2024. New allocations are set to be release every two weeks.
