I've refined Brian's Idea slightly over the years, and I must say it
works well. I use colored Wax, which tells me what year a jar was
sealed, and that way I can tell if a bottle goes too long with out
being opened or used. It allows me to keep tabs on stock in an extra
way, besides the date purchased.

Also it makes it easy to tell at a glance,to employees Pull all green
waxed jars that are unopened, they are X years old.

Compile a list, so we can make arrangements for their disposal.  I've
also considered using colored wax for storage classification, but I
use other codes on the bottles for that.
