    Well, a fifth holds 25.6 ounces of liquor, and most shots are about 1 to 1.5 ounces. So thats 17 to 25 shots, depending on how you pour them!

    I had to go onto google to find out what size bottle you were talking about:). i'm guessing it's a 0.75L bottle or there abouts ? Just to save other metric users the trouble

    In most Glasgow bars, you used to get shots in measures of 1/4 of a gill (35.5ml or 1.2 US ounces). At that rate you get just under 20 shots to a standard 70cl bottle of spirits. However to my great disgust, most are now moving to 25ml shots - which is less than 1/5th of a gill - without any associated reduction in price.

    One bar I know though has a sign up saying "This pub serves, and will only ever serve, whisky in quarter gills - the gentleman's measure."

    Wins my custom.
