J&B tattoo design

J&B-tattoo-whisky-bottlesEarlier this year, Diageo’s J&B blended Scotch whisky brand teamed-up with a tattoo studio in Paris to launch a rare selection of handcrafted limited edition bottles made to look like tattooed skin.

The bottles are made to look like skin through a complete latex covering and are contained in a customised wooden box which also has a tattoo design.

The design was inspired by the origins of mainstream tattooing practices in the late 19th century – the same period when J&B whisky first launched.

    Personally, I dislike bottles that hide their contents. Too much pleasure of a distillation lays in viewing the hues. The Highland Park 50, The Macallan M, and Johnnie Walker Diamond are all gorgeous. I was not too impressed by the J&B Tatoo or the Chivas Regal versions though, as those are basically fancy labels/wrappers with nothing unusual about the bottle itself.
