re-using liquor bottles. This statement on liquor bottles was first used
The embossing on the bottom states: "4 Bottled by Hiram Walker and
Sons, LTD Walkerville, Canada Bottle made in Canada"
Both the front and back of the bottle is embossed with one of Walker's
logos of the shield with the Capital "W" topped with a crown.
Excellent condition. 3 1/2" x 6 1/2"
NOTE: Hiram Walker started his distillery on the Canadian side of the Detroit River because of prohibitionist activity in the states in the 1850's. He created and built the town of Walkerville for his employees, it included schools, hospitals, churches, a music hall and homes. He was very successful and as a result his whiskey is still being made today. He made "Canadian Club Whiskey" a household name. (at least with whiskey aficionados)
