While fans have been petitioning for a renaming of the “Jack & Coke” as a “Lemmy,” the company behind the classic drink just one-upped everyone. Jack Daniel’s, whiskey makers extraordinaire, just released the Motörhead Limited Edition: Special Jack Daniel’s Selected Single Barrel Whiskey. Mmm mmm…
Here’s the description that accompanies the whiskey’s product listing online:
Motörhead’s hand selected batch of Jack Daniels® Single Barrel Select whiskey celebrates 40 years of the loudest rock band on this planet.
Once a privileged reserve only for the Jack Daniel’s Master Distiller – exploring the nuances of whiskey from a single barrel. Today, connoisseurs around the world can savor this experience on their own.
We have selected one that is dark, oaky, but still some corn and sweetness with that signature Jack smooth charcoal smoky finish
Raise a glass and celebrate with Motörhead and their ol’ friend Jack.
Unsurprisingly, the limited edition whiskey sold out almost instantly. Metal Injection fortunately cached a copy of the page, so you can see the Lemmy Kilmister tribute in all of its glory. The listing and sell-out was confirmed by Spirits Business as well.
Let’s all drink a Lemmy, perhaps with Motörhead whiskey, in his honor.
