J&B Scotch whisky (1)

MacReady's bottle of J&B Rare Blend, The Thing (1982).

J&B Rare Blend is a blended Scotch whiskey developed by Justerini & Brooks. The beverage features prominently in the 1982 film The Thing as the preferred drink of U.S. Outpost 31's helicopter pilot, R.J. MacReady. The drink is primarily seen during solitary scenes with MacReady, such as his game of chess against the Chess Wizard computer (notably, where he destroys the machine by pouring his glass of scotch into it). It also appears during the closing scenes of the film, as MacReady and Childs share a bottle of J&B scotch as they await death.
