Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we were (unsurprisingly) bummed to find out our office pool for the Powerball jackpot was a total bust, so we’re drinking our sorrows away from bottles without any high-power shine or bling. Still, these matte packaging designs are so chic our happy hour still feels like a million billion bucks.

Arakhan, by Ran Michaeli
Though these bottles are (surprisingly) inspired by the 1920’s agriculture, mine, and construction workers, the chic labels belie their blue-collar beginnings. The spray paint and earthy color palette makes drinking out of these petite flasks—which come wrapped in a paper bag, no less—a classy happy hour move.

Sóskút “13, by Ákos Polgárdi and Ágnes Rubik
This collection is the bespoke wine of our dreams, with an authentic, rough woodshop-look that still manages to maintain the glossy charisma of perfection. We can’t get enough of the subtle visual interest in each variation, from the unlikely cork labels to hand-cut letterforms.

Far North Spirits, by Jenney Stevens
Though the liquor hails from the rustic Midwest, this understated design is clearly inspired by the founders’ Nordic roots. The playful yet elegant packaging gives a nod to the outdoors with a floral, topographic pattern that also references the flavor profile of the gin and spiced rum. We love that that the visuals remain abstract and contemporary—plus, we can never get enough of clean type, embossed paper, and just a touch of shine.

Licor Beirão, by NTCG
This exclusive Portuguese spirit has finally helped me understand muscle car enthusiasts, because how can you not be obsessed with these beautiful, streamlined curves? The transparent sides reveal the golden hue of the liquor, and trace a stunning silhouette along the bottle.
