found this on the weekend at an antique store in North Bay Ontario so kind of near renfrew county but not that close to the actual town of Renfrew .

pretty sure i've never seen this one before which was why i bought it even though the condition isn't that great . have heard of millars beverages but haven't really seen many bottles from them

acl appears to read " Drink Sparkle Beverages " bottled by Millar Beverages Renfrew Ont " on back Sparkling " Sparkle Beverages " in sterilized bottles contents 10 fl oz , bottom is a consumers glass triangle and some ##'s , not sure what colour the acl would of originally been but appears to resemble a kist bottle somewhat so maybe red ?

wondered if anyone had ever seen this one before ?

It rings a vague bell, but I'm pretty sure that even if I have seen it before it's not a common one. And I don't recognize the name Millar's Beverages so I may not have seen this one before at all.

not sure if i've ever seen any bottles from Millar Beverages before , there is a listing in the book for them and they were in renfrew for a number of years 1930's-60's

there is a well known duck hunter bottle from renfrew and i though maybe it was from them but its from renfrew Bottling Works

looking at the bottle again appears original paint colour may have been white so possibly all white or a white/red acl

That's a super nice looking bottle. I have that exact same bottle but haven't seen to many around. Paid $5 for it when local collector sold some stuff. I was thrilled to get it.

what does your bottle look like exactly as i'm assuming it has the actual colour and paint still
