Not true, limit of one square foot per person. Otherwise I'd be building a house already.

In 1994 the Friends of Laphroaig Club was established, members of which are granted a lifetime lease of 1 square foot (930 cm2) of Laphroaig land on the island of Islay. The annual rent is a dram of Laphroaig which can be obtained upon visiting the distillery.

So you only get the land if you visit the distillery? Seems like OP left out a few details. Not gonna stop me from buying a bottle tonight, though.

I've almost got a Football stadium before my intervention.

Nope, you just need the code. I just didn't want to link this page rather than the wikipedia as I thought that might be a little bit too /sub/hailcorporate

Edit: in fact, I actually got the information from opening a bottle a few hours ago and reading the pamphlet but that's sort of hard to link to here.

A friend of my parents was a stock holder in Jack Daniels, Framed the Kentucky Squire certificate they sent him.

Good luck getting contiguous parcels!

Does each bottle tell you where your land is?

You get the land upon registering, but you also agree to forefit the land upon death, and agree to a lease, where the only rent is a single dram of whisky each year (if you visit the distillery).

Sounds like reddit needs to buy up a bunch of squares of land and call it Place.

I have a square foot of Jack Daniel's land, can't recall what I did to get it but they send me letters telling me what's going on with my property. Not as cool as the Maker's Mark Ambassador program, they give cool christmas presents.

I would figure you could get other people to buy it for you and get them to gift you the land, right?
