Did you know that Jim Beam did the bottling for Jack Daniels?
Check these pictures from an old Green Label bottle.
They bottled "our" whiskey in Clermont, Kentucky >:(/> :D/>

Maybe Mike or someone else knows the story behind??

I think it has something to do with the prohibition, or maybe the fire??

Looking forward to "your" answers.

we had a discussion about it nearly 3 years ago when it was listed on ebay - http://maxwellshouse...95324530/s-all/

I also would like to learn more about how this relationship between Jack & Jim came about :-//>

Andreas I have a Match book showing some more of the history of this event !! From what I can find out when Tenn went into prohibition , they started moving trying to stay ahead of Prohibition. they moved several time and finially ended up In St louis MO. the distributor there was evidently Pulling whiskey from Beam to fill orders . notice the SOLE distributor Murdock and Pohlman of E St Louis . That was the last state they were in before National prohibition set in .

Check this site out !!! Say Lem Motlow was looking to sell JD label rights to another liquor co.
Trying to find this source . in 1932 , may have to BEAM ?????


Lem Motlow wants to sell the rights to use the Jack Daniel label on whiskey to Schenley
(Jack Daniel Trademark File, United Distillers Archive).

Nice historical information and items guys! It is a shame most of this stuff was not documented. All we can do is guess and try to piece things together with what information we have. All of it is slowly coming together. We will get there eventually.

The last thing we want to find out - is the JD taste as we know it was enhanced by JB - LOL.

I guess back in the day - they all helped one another in a gentlemanly way.

I wanted to resurface this old thread.  Where/When/What did Beam have to do with Jack?  Was it pre National prohibition? Or after prohibition and before Lem could produce in Tennessee again.  Or was it both?  What did they do for Jack?  Did they bottle, distill, or distribute?  I know a lot more information must have come up in the past five years.

from what I have found out Jimmy it was after prohibition that these bottles came out . a lot to brands had to buy whiskey off what few companies that were allowed to keep making Medicinal whiskey during prohibition.to get supply out  till they could their production rolling. Lem used ky whiskey and his brandies to get back on his feet...  I will try and find that article on the pre pro site . and share It here ..
