I found this bottle in 2018 when clearing my great-uncles home. It states that Corney & Barrow Ltd manufactured it. I visited their establishment at 1 Thomas Moore Square in 2019 and showed them the bottle, yet no-one there had any knowledge of such a bottle be manufactured. I shared my contact details with them and never received any information. I am currently trying to get in contact with them again, but any help identifying the time period it was made and if it's even real would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like a bottle from the 70s. They bottled whisky but it's also possible that they bottled rum from Jamaica. Even when they don't know about it.

You can compare the rum label to their whisky labels to find out the period.

Some friends and I did some further research and found that, from the label, the bottle had to have been manufactured between 1953 and 1967. I tried to figure out when the actual bottle was made but the closest I could get was after 1930.
