Rolling Stones' Whiskey Released
As the Rolling Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary, they've rolled out a new logo and a book, and we know a documentary and maybe even a tour are in the works. With so much going on, maybe you're feeling a bit frazzled and could use a drink so may we suggest a glass of Rolling Stones whiskey? Japanese beverage manufacturer Suntory Group will honor the Stones' milestone with a limited-edition blended whiskey in a bottle molded like the band's iconic tongue-and-lips logo. And it's not just the container that pays homage to the band it's what's in it. There's a blend of six different whiskeys, each coming from significant years in the Rolling Stones' history. For example, the 1962 Yamazaki is in memory of the year the band formed, while the 1971 Yamazaki represents the year the Stones' adopted their logo. Meanwhile, a 1972 Yamazaki malt marks the year the band's landmark album "Exile On Main St." debuted (not so coincidentally, Suntory has used "Rocks Off," a song from that album, in its commercials). Others slated to be used in the blend also include Hakushu malt and Chita grain whiskeys from 1990 the year the Stones made their first trip to Japan. The Rolling Stones limited-edition Suntory whiskey goes on sale October 30 and when they say "limited-edition," they're not kidding. Only 150 bottles (700 ml each) will be made, and this potent potable will have an especially hard impact on not just your sobriety, but your wallet: the recommended retail price is $6,300. Thanks to ultimateclassicrock for the report.
