The most iconic example of a brand harnessing the power of design to promote its product is undeniably Absolut Vodka. Indeed, the arrival of the Absolut Company shifted the focus away from the product to its container and it has been one of the uncontested leaders thanks to its minimalist bottle shape, appealing colours and various limited editions.
Nevertheless, the competition quickly adapted and over the years we have witnessed a growing care given to the bottle. In a market always more competitive, some companies did not hesitate to go all the way and to up the ante to new highs. At Uvinum, we selected some of the most creative vodka bottle designs currently available on the market.
Easily recognisable thanks to its diamond shape, Precious Vodka was designed by Precious Vodka with the clear ambition to offer a Premium Luxury Vodka to its consumers. Besides its crystalline aspect, it also contains an actual gem such as sapphire, emerald, ruby, topaz, peridot and amber.
Crystal Head Aurora Vodka
With multiple awards from prestigious international contests, Crystal Head Aurora Vodka can boast an excellent taste along with a unique design thanks to its bottle shaped like a skull. Moreover, you will appreciate the mesmerising colours reminding us of the northern lights.
If we start talking about skull-shaped bottles, it becomes necessary to mention the Outerspace Vodka. This time, the source of inspiration is the extraterrestrials, an appropriate choice for a vodka filtered through meteorites. A great drink for a cosmic experience.
The Firestarter Vodka produced by an eponymous company and ironically in the shape of a fire extinguisher will deliver what its name promises: firing up your parties. This eye-catching product from Moldova has all the advantages: a great taste (5 distillations), an original design and an affordable price.
Vodka Red Army Kalashnikov
This design is quite straightforward in what it is supposed to evoke, Russia, its army, and its vodka-making tradition. Vodka Red Army Kalashnikov is displayed in a box similar to the unfamous Ak 47 Kalashnikov and contains a gun-shaped vodka bottle, six shot glasses (no pun intended) and a grenade filled with herbal liquor.
Vodka Bong Spirit Yosoh
A possible tribute to the relaxed approach to drugs of the Dutch, the Vodka Bong Spirit Yosoh combines the vices with its bong-shaped bottle filled with premium Dutch vodka. Not the most subtle design but it definitely belongs to current representations of what the country can offer.
The Ladoga Imperial Collection
We kept the most impressive bottle for the end. With its Imperial Collection, the Ladoga company really created an exclusive product whose outrageous price can only be explained by the incredible design. This vodka honours Russia’s two most outstanding export successes: traditional vodka and the Fabergé eggs.
