    Sparkling Portello with Canadian spring water bottle

    found this bottle near a dock when swimming the other day , never seen it before and never heard of this bottler . appears to be some sort of flavoured water or non alcoholic cooler .

    I've attempted to do some research and it appears to be from early 2000's , before the company was bought out by a larger bottler


    on the label says " sparkling Portello Pineapple , with Canadian spring water , 10 fl oz , 296 ml , the special non alcoholic beverage "

    also has a website www.portello.com which no longer seems to be active , says authorized bottler , bay hill impex ltd on Canada , UK origins
