The British Columbia Distillery Company of New Westminster, BC, was founded in 1903 before June 9 as the Vancouver Semi-Weekly World announced that day (p.5):
By 1910 BCDC was well established in Sappertown, and supplied products throughout BC, the Yukon, Western Canada, and the U.S., as well as "... the remotest ends of the earth and especially into every part of civilization where rye whiskey is appreciated." (B. C. Saturday Sunset, New Westminster, July 10, 1910:54).
During World War I, the British Columbia Distillery apparently sent whisky to Scotland and France (or at least they were looking into it):
The Bakelite cap reads "Hiram Walker & Sons Ltd". I don't think it is original to the bottle as I have found no evidence of the BCDC producing whisky for Hiram Walkers. But I could very well be wrong (the cap fits the bottle very well). Hiram Walker & Sons of Windsor, Ontario, registered this trademark on June 14, 1887 (http://www.ic.gc.ca/app/opic-cipo/trdmrks/srch/viewTrademark?id=0012148&tab=reg&lang=eng).
