For us "Yanks", what is this definition of "bottle" (and origin)? Predator doesn't smell strong booze on him, does he?

bottle: n nerve. To “lose one’s bottle” is to chicken out of something — often just described as “bottling it.” It may be derived from Cockney rhyming slang, where “bottle” = “bottle and glass” = “arse.” Losing one’s bottle appears therefore to refer to losing the contents of one’s bowel.
