Last week I introduced United Distillers Ltd. of Vancouver. This week, it’s time for a collection of marketing materials, starting with this newspaper advertisement from The Cariboo Observer, December 7, 1940. A second advertisement for Hospitality Rye can be seen in The Calgary Herald from 1940.

The three vintage UDL postcards that follow are from Vancouver collector Neil Whaley, who generously gave me a personal tour of his collection recently.

And the three glass bottles photographed above are from my personal collection; I purchased them on eBay and Etsy for just a few dollars each. For an extended post with more elaborate text, see my cross-post at
