I tell you what though, if obfuscated code were the aim, you would 
surely win!  I like the use of :s to get the "s" to pluralise the 
bottle, I'm sure I could use that somewhere.

I don't know what tips to give you really, other that your code doesn't 
need to be that complicated!  Stick in there though, it takes a bit of a 
mindset change to golf.
