Jack Daniel’s Announces Limited-Edition Motorhead Whiskey, Promptly Sells Out

The Jack Daniel Distillery has rolled out a special single-barrel whiskey in honor of Motörhead — not that you’re likely to see it in stores anytime soon.

Produced in an extremely limited run of 288 bottles and priced at $99 each, it “celebrates 40 years of the loudest rock band on this planet” by offering Jack Daniel’s drinkers an opportunity to sip from what was “once a privileged reserve only for the Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller – exploring the nuances of whiskey from a single barrel.” The flavor, according to the distiller, is “dark, oaky, but still some corn and sweetness with that signature Jack smooth charcoal smoky finish,” making it perfect to “raise a glass and celebrate with Motörhead and their ol’ friend Jack.”

Unfortunately, as Metal Injection notes, the stuff sold out pretty much as soon as it was made available — a sad state of affairs confirmed by the Spirits Business.

While this means anyone who really wants special Motörhead Jack Daniel’s will probably end up paying collector’s prices, fans can still honor the band — and its dearly departed frontman Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away on Dec. 28 — by ordering a good old-fashioned Jack and Coke under a brand new name.

As previously reported, a fan petition recently launched to officially rename the Jack and Coke the “Lemmy,” on the grounds that the equally iconic frontman and drink will “forever be associated” with one another. As of this writing, the (unenforceable but still quite cool) petition has gathered nearly 44,000 signatures.
