Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. Though we’re not the superstitious type, these dark packaging designs are still gorgeous enough to serve as lucky charms, warding against Friday the 13th vibes. Let’s drink to bloodthirsty mezcal and hilariously apocalyptic gin.
Black Vodka, by Anti
It wouldn’t be Friday the 13th without edging into the danger zone, and this vodka gives us all the thrills of a wild night out without any of the regrettable hangovers. Featuring a pattern of artfully placed fill-in-the-blank spaces á la Cards Against Humanity, the simple design manages to be playful without losing its impact.

Warfield Distillery & Brewery, by Conrad Garner
Who knew the end of the world could look so sweet? The retro illustrations might lull you into memories of a simpler time, but the true kicker is in the plot twist tucked into the tagline. With ominous monikers like “Mayday” and “No Return,” these spirits have us sold on the unlikely pairing of contradictory aesthetics.

Kraken Ceramic, by Stranger & Stranger
No “stranger” to packaging that’s as mysterious as the inky depths of the ocean, Stranger & Stranger delivers yet another design that’s equal parts creepy and exquisite. The serene yet terrifying angry tentacles, frozen mid-throttle, creates the allure of a vessel containing an ancient curse. Shall we take a peek, Pandora’s Box-style?

Eterna Libertad, by Law Breakers Mx
Hearts and flowers seem pretty anti-Friday the 13th spookiness, but this mezcal turns the floral details on their head with an illustration that looks like the main ingredient for seriously dark magic. Plus, with a pairing like gold foil, matte black, and a badass name (doubling as our motto for the weekend) you can’t go wrong.
