Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary Whiskey from Suntory

You may be aware that rock band The Rolling Stones is observing its 50th anniversary this year. To celebrate the occasion, Suntory Liquors Ltd has produced a limited edition whiskey. The special blend will be available in only 150 special bottles valued at $6,300. As you can see in the above photo, the bottles are adorned with the famous Rolling Stones “tongue and lips ” logo.

The blended whiskey will include whiskeys from many different years that are significant to the history of The Rolling Stones. These include blends from the following years: 1962, the year the band formed; 1971, when the “tongue and lips” logo first made its appearance; 1972, when their iconic album Exile on Main St.; and 1990, when the Stones made their first trip to Japan.

Here is the Rolling Stones playing “Gimme Shelter” at Pop Goes The Sixties in 1969.
