Description

Possibly the best gift for wine lovers ever invented. Whether you're taking a bottle round to dinner at a friend's house, or giving a good bottle to someone as a present, this is probably the most ingenious puzzle solving challenge ever made. Will the lucky recipient be able to free the bottle from the puzzle?

Instructions: simply remove the puzzle from the box, replace the card bottle with your best bottle of plonk. Then follow the included instruction sheet to correctly place your bottle in the puzzle, place it back in the box and hand it to the lucky recipient.

At first sight it appears laughably simple to open, but first impressions are deceptive. It's hugely entertaining watching the recipient go from cocky, to puzzled, to deeply frustrated - especially whilst everyone else is chipping in with their advice... "No, loop that bit over there, slip that toggle round the whatsit" etc. The recipient will feel they deserve every last drop if they do finally manage to crack it. If they don't, aside from you crowing, you can put them out of their misery as it does come with release instructions.

All Bottled Up is an ingenious gift idea for that 'perfect host', and fits standard wine, herb vinegar, and olive oil bottles (for non-booze drinkers). It's a great party piece and can be used again and again unless someone gets so frustrated they bring out the power tools.

(Does not include bottle!)

Features:

  • 'All Bottled Up' puzzle

  • Does not include wine!

Great gift

Every year we struggle to find a gift for my 80+ dad. I was just going to buy him a half decent bottle of red, when I stumbled across this "All Bottled Up" thing. It turned out to be a great success. It took him a week before he gave up and asked for the instructions, but we had some good fun during that week. He is now planning who he is going to pass it on to - the gift that keeps on giving. Highly recommended present for someone who has everything else.

This is a really great product but it would be a lot better if their was an option for one you can't cut as my mum gave up trying to solve it and cut the rope.

Good idea, failed in practice

I bought a standard bottle of wine and put it inside the All Bottled Up. Unfortunately, the rope was long enough so that you could take the bottle out without solving the puzzle, which was very disappointing. I stuffed the bottom to rectify this, and it then wouldn't fit back in the box.

I bought three All Bottled Up Puzzles, as it seemed a good idea, and they will not deteriorate before I do. It was easy to set up with the instructions, I now await the response from the recipient. It seems like a well made item, and we hope it causes a lot of laughs. I would recommend not only the site, but this item too.

Good fun but frustrating

All Bottled Up is the ideal gift for that certain someone who has everything or is difficult to buy for, as you can be almost certain they don't have one of these! It's a fun gift to give and it's entertaining to see how frustrated the receiver is when trying to master the puzzle and get the bottle out. I received the dark wood version, it is well made and you can smell the wood when you take it out of the box, which I think is nice as you can tell it's decent quality. The instructions to set up the puzzle are difficult to follow as you have to follow written and diagram instructions. I managed to do it, but I think it was by fluke rather than anything else! Although this is advertised as a wine bottle puzzle, I actually fitted a bottle of champagne into mine. It fitted in the base fine, but the cap was a little tight. You could also probably fit one of the larger bottles of beer or cider into it if you wanted or maybe a spirit bottle. I would definitely recommend this as a fun gift to give. It's also a gift that can keep on giving as once the puzzle is solved, they can pass it onto someone else - as long as you keep the instructions!

Opened it up, put a bottle of wine in, wrapped it up and gave it to my dad for a birthday. The quality of the gift is far better than the quality of the wine I put in it! Good puzzle, and provided some amusement that can be used on different guests over and over.

Really good puzzle

I bought the All Bottled Up as a Christmas present for someone. After I placed a bottle of wine in the holder it took me quite some time, even with the instructions in front of me, to complete the puzzle. I'm sure the recipient will be baffled too, as I won't be giving him the instructions right away!

Hours of amusement

I bought this Don't Break the Bottle for my Dad and I don't know who had more fun, him trying to solve it or me watching him and giggling. Don't lose the instructions as you may need them when the recipient finally surrenders, or alternatively, to set it up again once it has been solved. Put your best bottles of wine in there, it will provide some protection until you're ready to drink it.

how to torment a grown up?

I got the Don't Break the Bottle along with a bottle of wine for my dad's birthday. I put the bottle in the puzzle and presented it to my dad. What then proceeded was several hours of fun watching my dad try to gain access to his wine. Periodically, I would take the puzzle and solve it before quickly putting it back together again. There were several attempts to cheat by getting the scissors but I made sure it didn't come to that. As a whole, I feel this is a great item.

Great idea for tricking friends

I bought 'Don't Break the Bottle' for a very good friend's 60th birthday present. I intend to put either an expensive bottle of wine or a good quality whisky in the puzzle. I had great frustration and fun trying to work out how to secure the bottle, and then to release it from the puzzle. I must get the hang of this before I give it to my friend otherwise I'll never get a drink out of him! Excellent buy and such a good idea for a party. You've just got to try it!

Don't Break the Bottle

A friend recently had his 60th birthday, so, on the grounds that your brain cells need to exercise as you age, I gave him a good bottle of wine with this puzzle attached. It caused great amusement and I don't think he has solved it yet. I will relent and give him the instructions in a while! It did not take long to assemble, the instructions were perfectly clear. I have bought two more for other friends.

The instructions were okay, but could do with more pictures. It's quite a simple puzzle to set up and solve, once you know how. However, if you don't know how then it is quite challenging. You can adjust the string so it fits different sized bottles.

This Don't Break the Bottle took an age to set up as the instructions take a while to get your head around, but I managed it eventually. The real test will be how long it takes for us to get a drink on christmas day, when someone has to release the bottle. The longer it takes the more successful, until they break open the instructions.
