Tokaji Wine Bottle by Szabolcs Moldovan


general 01 02 03 05

Take a look at the stunning packaging design for Tokaji wine bottle created by Szabolcs Moldovan, Romania. All elements of the packaging are hand carved by an artist, further giving it value. This would be possible due to the fact that the aim of the product is not mass production. Materials used are wood and metal/precious metals. The wood wine holder symbolizes a cathedral that protects the wine, and even after the wine is consumed, the packaging can be reused as an artwork on a shelf or table, while the label that contains precious metals can be taken off the bottle and hanged on the wall of wine cellars, to further push the idea of reusable packaging, packaging that has value, and should not be thrown away or discarded. With all the work that goes into packaging these days, it is still heartbreaking to see that they end up in the trash.

Naturally Clicquot Bottle Cover


Naturally-Clicquot-600x378

Veuve Clicquot has come up with a new form of innovative packaging made with potatoes and recycled paper that can keep the bottle chilled for up to two hours. Created by French designer Cédric Ragot, the Naturally Clicquot bottle cover is made from potato starch and recycled paper, and is likewise recyclable. The cover can keep a bottle of the brand’s Brut Carte Jaune cold for up to two hours once it’s been chilled in the fridge beforehand. A user-friendly handle allows for easy transport. In 2011, Belgian designer Mathias Van De Walle created a foldable origami-style champagne bucket for Veuve Clicquot that could be reused up to four times.

Engraved Wine Chillers By Joe Doucet

Seeking to create more than just an object, design polymath joe doucet wanted to create a ritual. The series of wine chillers were commissioned by wallpaper for its annual handmade exhibit, and the final products were crafted by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbara, California. Placing a chilled bottle of wine inside one of the engraved containers ensures that it remains cool by preventing the loss of cold through convention, conduction and radiation. Based on the wind patterns of cold fronts that move around the globe, the grooved lines on the cases vary in depth as they wrap around the chillers.

Surprising Facts About Booze


enhanced-buzz-29921-1370262903-6

Diet mixers get you more drunk.

According to study conducted in early 2013, spirits mixed with diet pop get you 18% drunker than spirits mixed with the ‘full fat’ varieties. The theory is that your body recognises full-sugar drinks as food, which slows down alcohol absorption, where as diet drinks don’t.

Wanting to get drunk is natural. Possibly.

The ‘drunken monkey hypothesis’ put forward by Dr. Robert Dudley of the University of California suggests that human attraction to ethanol (pure alcohol) may have a genetic basis. He argued that the primate ancestor of homo sapiens had a high dependence on fruit as a food source, and consequently developed a genetic attraction to ripe and overripe fruit, which contains ethanol.

 Big lads aren’t necessarily the biggest drinkers.

A beer belly might mean you’ve consumed a lot in the past, but it doesn’t mean you can automatically handle more alcohol in one go than someone slimmer. In fact, a lean person will be less affected by booze because water-rich muscle tissues absorb alcohol effectively, preventing it from reaching the brain.

Cenosillicaphobia is a real phobia.

It means being scared of an empty glass.

 Tequila has a lot in common with champagne.

Both drinks have ‘Denomination of Origin’, meaning they can only be produced in one place (a certain region of Mexico and France, respectively). Also, like champagne, tequila is one of the most closely regulated drinks in the world, watched by the Mexican government, the Tequila Regulatory Council, and the National Chamber of Tequila Producers.

Booziest place in the world.

Is not Ireland, Russia, or any other country typically associated with a love for the sauce. Instead, that dubious honor goes to South Korea, who, according to a World Health Organization study, drinks more hard spirits than anywhere else — and is where Jinro soju comes from, the best-selling spirit on the planet.

Champagne is dangerous.

And not just because it makes you attempt the worm at wedding discos, either. Thanks to the approximately 49 million bubbles in each one, the pressure in a bottle of champagne is 90 pounds per square inch — three times the pressure in car tires — meaning a popped cork really could take your eye out.

Csetvei Winery Hrsz. 737 Wine Label Design


01 02 03

Take a look at the creative packaging design by Kira Koroknai, Budapest. As a starting point, Kira’s goal was to create a minimalistic and eye-catching design which fits to the extant identity of Csetvei Winery. With the black and white pattern, she wanted to reflect on the wine’s characteristic and full-bodied taste. The other aspect of the designing was to create the unity of the label and the bottle. Kira wanted the bottle design to be a part of the treat of drinking wine, that’s why she chose the full bottle design instead of a classic label form. This way, the bottle also becomes a part of enjoying the wine. It creates a personal experience as the drinker holds and turn the bottle around while having a chat.

Blood of Grapes Wine Bottle


03

This creative bottle design was created by Belarusian designer, Constantin Bolimond. His idea is based around the concept of wine as the blood of grapes. The striking form is themed off a human heart to reference the fruit’s origin – France. The product is realized in black and white finishes, featuring a simple inverse typeface to communicate the wine’s label. The design brings a new meaning to the devil’s nectar.

Absolut Tune Packaging Design


Absolut Tune is a sparkling fusion of Absolut vodka and crisp white wine. This champagne like bottle has a very Tord Boontje-esque double layered, flowery pattern to it. The caged cork glass bottle has two layers of plastic on it – one with a gold on blue, and the top layer with a matte/pearly white lined with gold that peels back ever so dramatically.

The Square Heineken Bottle?


French industrial designer Petit Romain recently conceived of a way to take beer outside the bottle. Tired of round bottles in six-packs that clink together and are difficult to stack, Romain imagined enjoying Heineken out of a square bottle instead. Back in the early 1960s, Heineken debuted a rectangular beer bottle that doubled as a glass brick. Similar to that design, the Heineken Cube concept delivers optimal storage for manufacture, transport, and ultimately consumer use.

Ponsardine By Veuve Clicquot.


Maison Veuve Cliquot offers a new limited edition box, ‘La Ponsardine’, in the shape of a sardines tin with its traditional flap.  The innovative Madame Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin was born to a family with a penchant for wit. When her father was named a Baron of the Empire by Napoleon in 1813, he was also honored with a coat of arms.  In choosing this family symbol, Nicolas Ponsardin took a satirical twist on his own name, selecting a coat of arms that illustrated a bridge (“pont” in French) beneath a sardine: PON(t)SARDIN(e).  In homage to Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin’s clever origins, the Ponsardine keeps history and a bottle of Brut Yellow Label playful and fresh.
