Why Do We Need V-Rod Bottle Openers?
Liquor pourers have a tapered design on the bottom. This is inserted inside the liquor bottle, and it acts as a type of suction when used. Pulling this upward can be challenging to do, and it may be a hassle for most bartenders when they need it removed right away.
The reason why it’s so difficult to remove is due to the strong suction the tapered bottom has created. It doesn’t add air into the vacuum, so it’s essentially stuck there. Adding force may help, but you could potentially break the bottle or strain your hand from doing so.
How to Use a V-Rod Bottle Opener
- Since most know how to use a bar key, the pourer remover has a similar motion. Insert the attached pourer into the hole until you can find a latch.
- Once it’s attached, just like how a bar key works, push the bottle opener in a diagonal direction. This will introduce air into your liquor pourer and release the seal.
- Pull the liquor pourer out with ease.
