There is very little information about this bitters bottle. Peter McQuade was from Brooklyn, New York. My guess is that he was in the wholesale and retail liquor business. The photos of this bottle below is embossed AMAZON BITTERS // PETER MC QUADE / NEW YORK. The color is an yellowish amber with a tint of olive.
