    Three nteresting bottles

    Hello everybody. I was wondering if anyone has any information on these bottles I dug up.

    This one I'm more asking if anyone's ever seen. I can't find any info on Charles and Co anywhere, but I have seen a cylindrical whiskey bottle bearing their name for sale online. I haven't been able to find this exact bottle, however. Has anyone ever seen this bottle somewhere, for sale or in a collection?

    Same sort of deal for this one. Plenty on the Honest Measure whiskey company around, but I can only find smaller pint sized bottles online. Anyone ever see a bigger Honest Measure like this before?

    This next one's the real mystery. I can find absolutely no trace of this thing online or otherwise. It looks like a beverage bottle, but I can't find a drink called Lactone existing ever, let alone in this bottle. No maker's marks on it. Lactone is a semi obscure chemical used for artificial flavoring, so maybe it's a utility/chemical bottle, but it looks like a beverage bottle, and has a top more reminiscent of something someone would drink from, rather than a bottle for storage. Sick bottle regardless. Peep the thickness on the base. I wish I had a better picture of the embossing and a picture of the base to share, but I'm currently away from home.

    Thanks for reading. Sorry if my formatting is jank; this is my first post here. Hoping one of you have seen a Lactone bottle before!

    Wow, an American blob top bowling pin bottle! That's not something I've ever seen before. I'm guessing that it's some sort of soda, but Lactone is a pretty weird name for one. Can't help you on the others I'm afraid, the Charles & Co. looks a bit like a bitters but I have no idea if that's what it actually is.

    I agree on the Charles & Co. looking like a Bitters. Maybe a chemical bottle also. That Lactone is really interesting...and cool! Wish I knew more.

    I always check Ebay first when I need to research a bottle. A Charles and Company recently sold on there. They made whiskey and / or bitters. I'm not sure about the other bottles.

    That's one of the cylindrical Charles & Co whiskeys I referred to seeing online in my original post. I was hoping someone had some more info on the company or had seen my particular bottle before
