I found this bottle swimming last week and just hadn't got around to posting it yet , don't really know much about it as never had one before . markings on bottle is " Cleco " on neck and " Bernard Beverages Limited Toronto " on bottom. book indicates Bernard beverages operated for a number of years . online I found a listing from ebay and it showed a similar bottle in full colour .but not really sure how common or rare this bottle is ? or much about Cleco cola ?

I have been watching that Bernard bottle on eBay. I would like to own it but at $53.00 plus shipping I will wait.

ran across one of these Cleco bottles a couple weeks back at an antique store and got it for a reasonable price , in fairly good condition and nice acl .

Here’s a 12 sided 6.5 oz bottle I have and thought I’d share. It’s heavily embossed on the top and on both sides with the name “MONTY”94661F4A-7C20-4C53-A116-8B688B4830ED.jpeg
On the bottom it says:
Bernard Beverages of Toronto Limited
Vernor’s Ginger Ale.
Dominion glass logo and a number 2.
Interesting bottle...

not sure I've seen that one before , oddly is very similar to the Brown's Beverages ( gravenhurst ) bottle , didn't know there was anyone else using a similar bottle


unsure what Monty was ? definitely weren't using this bottle for vernor's ginger ale , likely some sort of local flavour
