Custodial history

Bottles were donated to Heritage York for display at Lambton House by various donors, including Madelaine Mcdowell and Joy Cohnstaedt. Joy was responsible for donating the Royal Distillery Canadian whiskey bottle and the Ballantine’s London dry gin bottle.

Scope and content

Collection contains 11 empty bottles that range in dates over the 1900s. They are demonstrative of what may have been served or used at Lambton House while it was operational as a tavern.

Highlights include: a 1903 bottle of Canadian whiskey produced by the Hamilton Royal Distillery; a bottle of Ballantine's London dry gin, imported and bottled in Ontario ca. 1900; a 75th anniversary Canada Dry ginger ale bottle manufactured in 1979; a bottle of "Toronto's Very Own" amber lager produced by Molson Canadian ca. 1999; and several unmarked bottles, and bottles labeled O'Keefe's.
