(In U.S. dollars unless noted)

TORONTO, May 4 (Reuters) - Canadian soft drink maker Cott Corp BCB.TO (COT.N) posted a lower quarterly profit on Wednesday, hurt by higher commodity costs.

    First-quarter earnings fell to $6.8 million, or 7 cents a share, from $11.5 million, or 14 cents a share, a year earlier.

    Excluding special items, the profit was 9 cents a share.

    Revenue rose 47 percent to $534 million, largely helped by an acquisition. (Reporting by S. John Tilak; Editing by Lisa Von Ahn)
