Harley, Cantrell & Cochrane was an Irish Beverage mfg. that exported to US and Canada. A bottle from this company was discussed on the forum last year. I did a google, and there's a great deal of info regarding the company. Without seeing your bottle it's hard to tell what you have, C & C have been around since mid 1800's
