- Reaction score
“Bottle” in rhyming slang is “bottle and glass” = Class. It was associated with boxing, i.e., “he’s got some bottle” or “he’s lost his bottle”.Khyber pass is arse, while aristotle is used on it's own in Australia for bottle - I've never heard 'ari' used.
It must be a Lahnd'n thing.
May mean different things across various London boroughs but that was the meaning in Bermondsey/Walworth when I was growing up there.
