Probably a bitters, but you can basically count bitters as alcoholic bottles. They contained large amounts of alcohol. One dose of Dr. J. Hostetter’s Stomach bitters was the equivalent of a shot of straight whiskey.

Believe they sold liquor of various sorts in a few different containers. My mom had a cobalt cylinder with the same embossing only horizontal on the shoulder. Traded it for a good ink many years ago. It was a great window bottle that we dug locally back in the 70s.

Bitters were also used as a mixer. Used in cooking recipes too!
