Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we’re feeling rebellious with curvaceous bottles that buck the ergonomic glass trend. Sure they’re a handful, but these bulky decanters, bulbous mugs, and avant-garde vessels are oh-so-easy on the eyes.

Who knew the marriage of an elegant decanter and a sleek flask would yield such a shapely yet clean silhouette? We’re crazy about the frosted engravings that soften the crisp lines of the illustrations without sacrificing the signature image of each flavor. Plus there’s a classy vessel for every occasion: cool and pristine for wintertime, a warm golden hue for autumn, and a saturated tropical look for the summer.

Cup Mulled Wine, by Constantin Bolimond
When it comes to warming up, gloves have nothing on cupping our hands around a piping hot mug of mulled wine. And finally, there’s a packaging design that distills this level of unparalleled coziness into a bottle, and manages to look familiar yet unorthodox. Note: best enjoyed with Netflix and your fuzziest blanket.

Millesime Champagne, by Jerome Olivet
Elegant, mysterious, and most of all dynamic, these otherwordly shapes look like inky black blobs suspended mid-motion. The rolling and twisting movements depicted on the bottles remind us equally of lava lamps and modern art, and are just as mesmerizing as both.

Vodka Samurai, by Arthur Schreiber
Don’t worry, you’re not seeing double yet. Instead of leaning on typical visuals of samurai swords, this vodka makes a more abstract nod to its namesake. Resembling a bottle that’s been expertly sliced in half, the design contains a graphic geometric essence and an overall pared-down aesthetic that makes us feel super zen.
