    Your photo doesn't have a very high resolution.
    Maybe you could take closeups that show (or show the lack of):

    • What city is listed on the label?
    • What numbers are cast into the glass bottom?
    • UPC?
    • Government warning?

    The added photo helps.

    This is probably a store/club/bar specialty bottling for a Washington DC establishment by Brown Forman. Common major BF products are Old Forester and Early Times.

    Is "Alex's" the name of an establishment there?

    Is the bottle in metric (750ml) or standard (fifth)? If it's metric, it's probably between 1978 and 1985 or so, more or less. If it's standard it's older.
