Partial word: “CHEST”
Chester or Westchester maybe?
At first I thought bottom letters were from “TONIC WATER,” but now I’m not sure. Maybe first part is inc?
Any help would be so appreciated!
Maybe hard to see in pics, but light green, not clear.

There was a Westchester Bottling Works in New Rochelle, if that's close to you. I can't find a picture of a bottle like yours but they were in business during the correct era for a bottle like that.

I was getting hutch vibes so I type in "chest" as the primary embossing on hutchbook and these are some of the results that turned up.

Take note of the arc embossing.

The G is under the E on the hutch bottles though. Maybe a blob soda (non-hutch) or a different city name with "chest" in it.

Here's another hutchbook search result. I typed in "Winchester", this time in the city name search field.

If you search all possible city's with the word "chest" in them you may get lucky.

I think I see half of a T on the shard, making it "TCHESTE". That's why I went with Westchester, I can't think of anything else for those letters. Doesn't bring up any results on sodasandbeers though, so maybe an ABM crown top bottle from the 20s or so?

I agree. There definitely appears to be a T before Chest. I'm wondering about possibly West Chester Bottling Works (West Chester Pennsylvania). Something along these lines??

Looks like a match! Maybe not exactly the same bottle due to the different colour but almost certainly the same company I think.
