Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week, we’re buying popcorn in bulk and taking bets on who will win big—that’s right, the 88th Academy Awards are here. We’ve being waiting all Oscar season to crack open these winning gold statuette-worthy designs, and now they can finally earn their place on our tipsy trophy shelf.
Salut!, by Estudi Walabi
No need to break out the champagne flutes when we’ve got these slim growler-style brews. With its clean and contemporary custom typeface printed in a shimmery gold, Estudi Walabi manages to elevate the common brown bottle. It makes us think of a movie montage where the unexceptional bottle undergoes a makeover, and finally embodies the full potential of its beautiful packaging.

Fil, by Senyor Estudi
Fashion, meet packaging design. With a name that directly translates to “thread” in Catalan, the play of the lines in the typography and the golden “fil” really pulls the sparkling wine together (no pun intended). The final reveal shows an understated elegance that’s bound to wow.

Laudum Roble, by Lavernia & Cienfuegos
If a bottle were also a love letter to classic arts, this wine is it. The shape is an homage to the stoic beauty of columns—because after all, you can’t get more classic than ancient Roman architecture. But what we appreciate more than the vaulted bottle’s form is the decision to counterbalance the obvious source of inspiration (reflected in the bottle and moniker) with the more subtle, delicate details like the golden wreath atop the cork.

And because a happy hour list for the Oscars can’t exclude a little bit of packaging design drama, our final pick is a regally crested gin withwith a plot twist up its sleeve. Turn the lights down and enjoy the bottle’s light show as the label transforms into theatrical cut-outs.
