Hi everyone,
I’m looking to build my collection of bottles from the Hiram Walker Distillery. There are so many different brands since 1858. My oldest bottle is an 1886 Canadian Club bottle. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a pic of your 1886 Bottle? Welcome to the site. LEON.

I'd be curious to see that 1886 bottle as well. Were they embossing bottles that far back or were they all just paper labels? I don't remember seeing a BIM Hiram Walker whiskey before at all actually.

I know I've seen that name on something, just not 100% it was on of my own!! All my bottles are in boxes/totes til I finish building more shelves! Ran outta room in my limited area to display all the bottles that were dug, gifted, or while some, I have no idea who or where they came from?? After taking interest into this hobby, walked on the back porch, where this was standing up next to the steps??? Neither my wife nor myself remember from whom or where it came from

Sorry I didn't mean to hijack your thread, been meaning to post this one for a while and thought it may have been from the company that you're asking about, but hey, at least I got the "H" right

Lemme see if I can put hands on it, if I'm remembering correctly at all (that's a 50-50 crap shoot, as my memory has been slacking as of late)

Just paper labels.

Just paper labels.
I'm surprised how similar it looks to the current Canadian Club bottles, if I saw that in an antique store I'd have to look pretty closely to realize it wasn't a 20th century bottle. The label is in fantastic condition for an 1880s bottle as well!
