Max very nice bottle. Mine does not have a back label like yours unfortunately. Yours is indeed a 45 as well.

I believe Max is correct with the date of 1964.  1945 was during WWII and I don't believe there was any activity at the distillery at that time   JMO

Max:
Your bottle is 1945. 64 is the number of the bottle mold.
The back label says it is aged less than 1 month. In all my years of collecting, I have seen very few of these. I have this label on a pint bottle, but not on a 1/2 pint. Very rare!

Sorry Gene, but Prohibition was over & the Distillery opened in 1938 & was making whiskey & brandy. The Distillery operated during the war & made fuel for the war effort. I have always heard they made fuel for torpedoes.

No need to apologize Mike !!  This is, and will always be a learning experience. Always learning something new here on the forum !!  Great news for Max too, his bottle is older than he thought !!

 

Can anyone explain the proper way to date bottles ??  I always wondered .....

My understanding of the way the bottles are marked would be
64- bottle mold
D925 - jack designation
45 - year

If you look at some of the cylinder bottles that were used in the late 30s and early 40s the D925 was the designation that it was a Jack bottle even though it did not have Jack embossed on the side.
