    Question Jack Daniels Lem Motlow

    Hi all,
    for an acquaintance over here in Switzerland I am looking for a (full) Jack Daniels bottle with a Lem Motlow label. The bottle should be in good condition (good label, no leakage), size preferably 70 centiliter (I guess a fifth comes close).

    I already found a set of three bottles (a half pint, a pint and a fifth) but the owner will only sell the whole set and is not prepared to break it up.

    Question: is anybody interested in the half pint and pint bottle so we can split up the set and share?
    Or: does anybody maybe have a Lem Motlow labeled Jack Daniels for sale?

    I can arrange shipping to Europe so you don't have to worry about that.
    Love to hear from you...

    Can't say that I have ever seen such an item, though I don't search for Jack often. Is this just a bottle of Jack with a different label?

    I would suggest you look up a SB.com member and a moderator here.
    His name is Scott, his screen name is HighTower, he has a large collection of Jack and I'm sure he can help.

    Re: Jack Daniels Lem Motlow

    Twenty something years ago when I worked at a liquor store in Atlanta we had a "Lem Motlow" whiskey, which was below the green Jack on the cost scale. I am pretty sure I subsequently learned that the distribution of it was very limited.

    OK, from a quick google it looks as if it was only sold in Tennessee and Georgia and is no longer in production. It also looks as if I should have bought several cases, because it's going for a fortune these days.

    thanks for the reactions.
    I know nothing about Jack Daniels and only offered to help to locate the bottle so I can't comment on 'when bottled' and 'where distributed'. What I did learn though is that the going price is pretty high here in Europe, which might explain why my acquainance is prepared to pay quite a bit (700+ USD range).

    I will look into the the connection mentioned and keep you updated on my quest.
    Regards, Hans

    Re: Jack Daniels Lem Motlow

    What craigthom said is consistent with my knowledge about this product. It is a long-since-discontinued product of the Jack Daniel's Distillery that was never widely distributed. It also was a bottom shelf product, i.e., nothing special whiskey-wise, but that doesn't matter to many collectors.

    I was surprised to learn, on my most recent visit to Lynchburg, that Lem Motlow whiskey was bottled until 1993. I'd assumed it was discontinued earlier.

    Re: Jack Daniels Lem Motlow

    I bought a bottle of this in Memphis in the mid 80s. I think it was Memphis, could have been Atlanta. I recognized it as a Jack Daniels product and since it cost a lot less than the black label I figured it was worth a shot. The label said it was three years old. It was hot, harsh, thin and I never bought another.

    I believe that I have a bottle or two of Lem Motlow in my collection somewhere...it's been awhile since I've been to the "back" of the closet, but if you are still interested, I would be willing to dig around back there and see what's up. Let me know.

    Thanks,

    Beo

    There seems to be a new George Dickel Cascade Hollow Batch bottling. Apparently less than 3yo. This may be of interest in a comparison with the Lem Motlow. I haven't had it or seen it yet, but a store in Georgia lists it as available.
