All Bottled Up
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.

Great product. Ideal present for anyone who enjoys wine and puzzles!
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.
Excellent and fun product
My dad hated the fact that he could not get access to his favourite bottle of wine when in the All Bottled Up. It makes this product an absolute success.
This All Bottled Up is a brilliant idea. It makes giving wine that bit more special.
