Ok, I used select by colour, clicking first at the top area, then
clicking with shift key more times and a bit lower until it selected
all but the bottle and some of the white reflection in front.

    sides
   selected
  v        v

      ##
      ##
     /##\
     ####
     #### <- bottle unselected
     ####
     ####
     ####   
     ####
     ==== <- shadow/edge selected
     #### <- reflection unselected

Then zoom in and finish by hand the reflection, if you have clicked
enough times, down a bit each time, you should have it easy, because
the lower edge of the bottle is dark and should have been cut for you
(the ==== part in the graphic).

Play with feather, grow/shrink or quickmask if you need to adjust the
selection, until happy. Finally apply the colour with the bucket tool,
using Colour mode for example and adjusting tranparency on the tool
options. That way you get a similar gradient, keeping the reflection.

Another way is that once the selection looks ok, instead of using the
bucket, add a layer, use the selection to build a layer mask, and fill
the full layer. This is a bit more complex, but lets you change colour
quickly (save the selection to channel as security measure, then
remove selection and drag and drop to the image window from selector
as many times as you want) and mode and transparency on the fly.

IOW, concepts you should input into a search engine for deeper
explanations: quickmask, selection, layer mask, layer mode (plus gimp
tutorial with each of them).
