A Half full wine jug was once obtained by drinking once from a jug of wine. Later, via update, it was changed so that a jug of wine was consumed in one drink. One half-full wine jug heals 700 life points when consumed.
The rarity of this item comes from the fact that it became a discontinued item via a hidden update, and very few players possessed half full wine jugs at the time. Soon, their rarity was realized, and prices began to skyrocket, although it was behind in Grand Exchange prices compared to some rare items that can be worn. The Street value of this item, however, is significantly more than any other rare with the exception of the Christmas cracker and some of the more expensive Partyhats. Other than boasting rights, this item has no specific value except its meager healing; only the rarity provides the object of its value. Half full wine jugs are among the most sought-after items in RuneScape due to their extreme rarity.
Before the new Bank Op and Equip Screen Update, players were advised to not carry these items as an item, as they will turn into an empty jug if accidentally drunk. Players would usually withdraw this item as a bank note in order to avoid accidentally drinking them.
For months after the release of the Grand Exchange, Half full wine jugs were considered a junk item taking weeks to sell on the Grand Exchange. This has since changed and is now one of the most sought after collector items, once fetching max cash on the Grand Exchange at their peak.
