tenth

In the United States, a bottle of whiskey, vodka, or similar spirits containing one-tenth of a U.S. gallon; half the size of the much more common fifth, containing one-fifth of a gallon, or 4/5 of a quart. See reputed quart.

After the fifth was standardized at 750 milliliters, the name tenth continued in use for a bottle with 375 milliliters (3.4 milliliters less than before).
