e = calibrated bottle

The letter "e" on the label testifies that it is a calibrated bottle according to the EU standard. This is always indicated in connection with the nominal volume, for example with "e 750 ml" or "0.75 cl e". This designation has been obligatory for all EU member states since 1977. Only the slightest deviations are permitted. See also under Hollow measures.
