Rolling Stones’ longevity marked with new line of drinks

Half a century of musical achievements by The Rolling Stones are to be commemorated in Japan with the release – appropriately – of a new line of alcoholic drinks.

Suntory Liquors Inc. is to release the new drinks on 19 June under the Stones Bar label to mark the formation of the band in London in April 1962. The drinks will bear the iconic rock’n’roll lips and tongue logo that has been the mark of the band since the 1970s.

The launch will consist of three new drinks, although the company said it may add to the line in the future.
