J&B Whisky in Tattooed Bottles

View all 9 Photos

J&B Whisky opened its barrels around the same time that tattooing emerged in England. Soon embraced by sailors in the royal navy, European tattooing and J&B grew to popularity together. Paying homage to the company’s beginnings, J&B has released a limited edition run of twenty-five tattooed bottles of their Rare Scotch Blend Whisky. The bottles were inked by Sébastien Mathieu of Le Sphinx, an esteemed parlor in Paris. The finished pieces are the color of pale skin and bear full-color tattoos, each of which took approximately twenty hours to complete. The unique designs are displayed in black wooden boxes stained with similar iconography and are currently on display at both Publicis Drugstore and L’éclaireur Rue Herold in Paris.
