Arc-net’s blockchain platform is to be used to demonstrate provenance and authenticity of a new Australian whisky.

The drink is a fusion of Scotch from Glen Garioch and Glen Grant distilleries and a five-year-old Australian whisky created by Fusion Whisky and Adelphi. It is called The Brisbane in honour of the Scot who founded the Australian city.

The arc-net system is a cloud based data analytics and supply chain security platform.

Kieran Kelly, founder of arc-net, said it is the first company to use Blockchain technology with a whisky.

“Our aim is to establish the global standard in product and supply-chain transparency, authentication and security, providing the consumer with 100% traceability, provenance and product authenticity.

“The arc-net platform offers both brand and product protection and provides brands with a voice on the global stage.”

Fusion Whisky said it has followed Adelphi’s use of Blockchain technology to demonstrate The Brisbane’s provenance and production history.

The firm partnered with Adelphi Distillery to produce a series of international blends using Scotch and world whisky, launching The Glover in 2015 and then The E&K and The Winter Queen.

Arc-net previously said it would mark and authenticate each bottle of Adelphi’s Ardnamurchan Distillery 2017AD limited release set for 2021.
