Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. Though we’re unabashed fans of the designer behind the 007’s iconic opening titles, we’ve yet to indulge in a shaken-not-stirred happy hour. As autumnal winds put us in the mood for a brooding session by the fire, it’s time to pop open elegant bottles that are high-caliber enough for the most sophisticated British spy we know.

Sandeman Tourism Pack, by VOLTA
Even when bathed in the harsh fluorescent lighting of airports, we guarantee this set of mini wine bottles will look enticingly mysterious. The rendering of the faceless silhouette of a trenchcoat-clad figure looks striking in a gritty-yet-chic, graphic-novel kind of way. Also, we sincerely appreciate the snail mail-inspired back that infuses old-school charm to the otherwise generic gift of liquor from a duty-free store.

PITAGORA, by SFAUSTINA
Though inspired by the ancient Greek scholar Pythagoras, the sleek, understated aesthetic and strong geometric design has us thinking this is the perfect bottle for the spy who seems a little too conspicuously bold and suave to truly fade into the woodwork.

Black Diamond, by Israel Yosseph Design
Besides having a brand name catchy enough to be the title for the next Bond movie, this packaging impresses us with its aura of luxury—achieved without gaudy labels or glitz. The edgy lines and strategic hits of matte metallic offer a demure yet posh look, while the smart details (note how the negative space between the letters “A” and “M” create an outline of a diamond) tie the design seamlessly together.

Enkaja, by Tatabi Studio
Composed of one-part science and two-parts sex appeal, this futuristic cocktail vessel uses connecting blocks of ingredients. Built to basically hack cocktail-making, the gadget allows you to create a perfectly concocted drink with no measuring or shaker needed. Consider this the bartender’s version of an invisible car or super-spy pen.
