Assassin’s Creed Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Themed Vodka, Rum, And Whiskey

Quite a few significant video game anniversaries have come and gone recently with little more than a mention that a flagship character was celebrating a big birthday. Looking at you Donkey Kong. Ubisoft won't be letting that happen to Assassin's Creed, and has recently revealed a selection of spirits launching later this year to mark 15 years since the series began.

Leading the charge is an incredibly special bottle of Assassin's Creed-themed whiskey, as reported by VG247. The beverage will come courtesy of a company called Antheum Studios. Antheum sounds more like a developer than a spirit seller, and there's good reason for that. The company specializes in licensing and distributing limited edition drinks based on sports teams, movies, and of course, video games.

As for what's inside the bottle, that comes courtesy of distillery Tenessee Legend. In fact, if you live near one of Tennessee Legend's four stores, all of which are situated in (you guessed it) Tennessee, you'll be able to get your hands on these special edition sprits before anyone else. If you don't fancy a trip to Tennessee, you can order a bottle online, but only if you live in one of 37 eligible states and Assasin's Creed fans outside the US appear to be out of luck.

The Assassin's Creed whiskey is a straight bourbon and will cost $69 for a 750ml bottle. As touched upon above, there are other options for fans of the games who want to celebrate in style but aren't bourbon fans. Two of them, in fact. A Valhalla-branded vodka, and a very fitting Black Flag spiced rum. While the whiskey appears to be available now, the rum and vodka will not be added to the collection until September.

Even without the celebratory sprits, Assassin's Creed's 15th year could be a very big one for the series. Although nothing has been confirmed just yet, it seems likely that the next game in the series, reportedly called Rift and set in Baghdad, will be announced at the Ubisoft Forward next month. It also seems likely that the presentation will also includ new details about Assassin's Creed Infinity, the ambitious future of the series that has already started to take shape.
