BOTILLERÍA

Botilleria - Salitrera Humberstone
15th C storage place for bottles and/or bottled wine. During the 15th and 16th C it was the place where bottles were stored including bottled wine. Nola points out that it was the duty of the overseer of an aristocratic home to keep the botillería well stocked. Pérez explains that during the 19th C, botillerías in Madrid were shops that served coffee, chocolate, sodas and some meals. [Nola/Pérez. 1994:72:190]
