Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we were busy nerding out over Back to the Future throwbacks—remember, Marty McFly time-traveled to the “future” date of October 21, 2015—but we’re not done yet. Let’s celebrate one last time before blasting forward to the past with contemporary type and geometric pattern play that prove the future is now.

Château La Coste, by Quentin Moretti
Finally, a design that unifies our left and right brain with the perfect mixture of structured details and funky type. Inspired by the vineyard’s topography, the label uses grids, graphs, and charts that belong in the math class of our dreams. The rigidity of the lines is broken up by the playful colors and crooked letterforms that exude a whimsical yet seriously stunning look—the perfect mantra for happy hour.

Doméstico, by Futura
Known for its simple, elegant, and darkly sexy aesthetic, design studio Futura does it again with a bottle of distilled liquor that looks more like a 21st-century iteration of an apothecary bottle. Designed with the intention of embodying the “modern Mexican saloon,” this abstract packaging sports eye-catching logos, a subtle pink hue, and contrasting inky bottles for a look that is crazy clean yet somehow mysterious enough to fit in at a dimly lit bar.

Santino Winery, by Jan Baca
Next time anyone decides to space-age some liquor (ICYMI, space-aged whisky is already a thing) we volunteer this dreamy wine, sporting geometric patterns and uncluttered design that is so NASA happy hour-appropriate. Though the label represents the gold mining history of California, the clean edges of the illustration remind us of meteorites from outer space. Either way, the look is (bad pun alert) out of this world.

Wine to Eat, by Barn Studio
There has been an undeniable resurgence of mason jars in the last few years, but we propose this compact and chicer alternative. This wine-infused spread is cleanly packaged and labelled with a decidedly contemporary bent—all tempered by the rustic charm of the cork top. The overall aesthetic is elegant enough to contain wine-infused caviar or some good ol’ jam.
