Bottles known to date as late as 1974 still had that inscription on them; click 1970s liquor bottle to see an example which is also covered later on this page.: Canada followed a similar trend as the U. in the gradual implementation of alcohol prohibition with the various Province's going "dry" between 19, though there was never a "national prohibition" passed in Canada.

To be fair, ethyl alcohol was (and is) one of the better preservatives for products intended for internal consumption or external use.
