Suntory Liquors Ltd.If you want to toast The Rolling Stones on their 50th anniversary, and spend a lot of money doing it, the Suntory liquor company is producing a special limited-edition blended whiskey in honor of the band reaching the milestone. The Asahi Shimbun reports that the spirits, which will be available starting October 30, will come in a specially designed bottle shaped to resemble The Stones' famous tongue-and-lips logo and will sell for $6,300, or 500,000 yen. Only 150 bottles will be sold.
Six varieties of whiskey are being used to create the blend, each one hailing from a significant year in the history of The Stones. For example, a 1962 single-malt whiskey has been included to mark the year the band was formed, and two from 1990 have been used to commemorate the year when the rockers first ****** Japan.
