Nice bottle Ollie, but not the one Joe is referring to. "Imperial Quart" is embossed on the older Canadian bottle. I think there is a picture on JeePee's site.

Not as rare as my 1974 Paper Seal Imperial Quart! ;)/>

(there's a picture on my collection thread - I don't want to put it here as this is a wonderful thread about Joe Fanning ;)/> )


You are a true gentleman Rob. I will find the really rare stuff in the "Your Collection" thread.

The Imperial quart fake sealed bottles are pretty rare Olli. I got a price tag of $ 500.00 on both the fake sealed Imperial quarts (the 1.136ml and the 1.14 ml). But indeed, a paper sealed version is even more rare. As far as I know there are two versions (allthough... I got two different versions). One has a red seal and the other a blue Motlow seal. First paper sealed came from Canada and the second versthe blue Motlow sealed) is from Hong Kong.
Value? Dont know... but I am glad I got both here in my display.

A few more pictures from Joe's home.

A Belle of Lincoln bottle made just for Joe at his retirement. For you golfers, the 19th hole means the end of the day and time to go to the clubhouse.

Another one of a kind bottle.

Probably one of the rarest bottles he has. An acid etched (frosted) prototype of the Belle of Lincoln bottle. Only one was made to see what it would look like. The circles on the bottom, and the neck is frosted. The Distillery did not like it, and went with the clear bottles. Only one known to exist.

I have one of the embossed bottles in my collection.
Any chance of getting a label for me from him? ;)/>

Happy Holidays.

Sorry Andreas. I asked Joe tonight if he had any extra labels for you and JeePee. He said he did not have any. As far as he knew, only 2 were made for his 2 bottles.

Mike ~
I know you are getting a lot of questions to answer but I have put off getting info on this bottle.. I had thought it might be one of the first shots at the Belle bottle -

It has 68 on the bottom and the etched JACK DANIEL's is consistant in style with a few other 1960's JD items,.. I do not think it is fake because I bought it from a lady whos husband was in the bottling bisiness, and was a collector - she said it was one of his favorite bottles.. Story was not made up to jack up the price either..

can you inquire if you have the opportunity?
~ thanks!
