Copper bottles purify your water with oxidization. When you add hot water, the process gets disturbed. Additionally, since copper is a metal it will absorb the heat and it will become difficult to carry a hot water bottle.

Hot / boiling water can negatively affect your bottle. Hot water makes the copper reactions faster and potentially cause the water to absorb too much copper from your bottle (the greater the temperature of water, the more capable it is of absorbing metals such as copper).
