Great Minds: Churchill's Cigar and Whisky Bottle Puzzle

Will you be able to master this challenging glass, wood and metal brainteaser?

Winston Churchill was the British Prime Minister who led the country to victory in World War II. He was often seen with a glass of whisky in his hand and a cigar in his mouth. As a young man in South Africa, he maintained that because the water was unfit to drink, he had to add whisky and “by dint of careful application, I learned to like it!”

The aim of this challenging puzzle is to remove the bullet from Churchill's whisky bottle – are you up to the task?
