    What Brand is This?

    When the characters of one of my favorite shows, Trailer Park Boys, are shown drinking liquor it is usually the same brand but the label is either obscured by fogging or hidden in some other way. Judging by the show itself I would assume that what they are drinking is cheap stuff and since the show is Canadian I would also assume it is a Canadian liquor or at least a bottle that is primarily sold in Canada since I have never seen it in any of the liquor stores I have been to here in the US. (Truth be told, I've never specifically looked for it so I may have missed it.) Anyway, in an episode I recently watched they had a decent view of the bottle (as Officer Jim Lahey takes a swig from it in uniform ) and I took a frame, does the bottle look familiar to anyone? I always have a drink when I watch this show and it would be cool to someday drink what appears to be the shows liquor of choice! Here is the pic, I did some searching online but it did not turn up anything, hopefully someone here will recognize it!



    Thanks!

    edit: My apologies if this is in the wrong forum, I assume it is whiskey but for all I know it may not be.

    The bottle shape looks like Alberta Premium. Same kinda label too.

    I thought Julian only drank rum? (Jeddore is a region in Nova Scotia)

    I love that show. I bought my wife the movie for her birthday (in june, it's hidden in my basement right now).

    I think you got it. I'm surprised I didn't notice this at first but upon closer inspection of the scene it appears that "Jeddore Premium" is printed on a black band that is taped or glued to the bottle. If you look closely you can see that the colors do not quite match and that the non-matching portion appears to be raised. So, I guess there is no "Jeddore Premium". Jeddore appears to be somewhat close to where the show is filmed so maybe it is home to some of the people on the show or in charge of it. I think I'll try and find Alberta Premium anyway for the hell of it, from what I read it doesn't sound bad. Here's another pic where the difference is more obvious:

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's all he drinks, rum and coke, but I've seen Lahey, Ricky, and Ray all drinking from that bottle. Which movie did you get, the new one? If so I'm sure you and your wife won't be disappointed! (The first movie wasn't bad either, it's not as funny as every other TPB ep or movie imo.) Somehow after almost 7 seasons, 2 movies, and an X-Mas special (basically a 3rd movie) the show doesn't run out of steam!

    Thanks for the input guys!

    It's the movie that was released last year. I'm looking forward to seeing it, but it'll have to wait until the end of next month.

    I like how Julian doens't spill his drink.

    Julian does only drink rum. The person drinking it is Mr. Lahey. Looks like he enjoys a delicious bottle of Alberta Premium daily!
