Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we’re fighting the seasonal sluggishness that rolls in with autumn, thanks in part to slate-gray skies and the wtf-it’s-dark-outside-already?? transition to daylight savings time. Since we’re feeling so blue, we thought we’d bust out some packaging design to dispel all our doom and gloom with electric, contemporary, and downright cool shades of blue.

Familiar yet fresh, elementary shapes and simple color palettes seamlessly converge for an incredibly sophisticated design that’s a fit for both a Modern art collection and a wine rack. The contemporary bottles use blue as a running theme for a cohesive look that doesn’t depreciate the artwork with a mass-produced vibe. Plus, the wrapped packaging is already present-ready for the holidays.

P one, by Josef Heigl
We would never have guessed this wine was designed for the Surf World Cup. Sure the label makes a few nautical references with graphics that evoke sails and waves, but the symbols are abstract enough to be appropriate for every season. Plus, the warm coppery shine of the gold foil offers a rustic dichotomy to the summery look that’s appropriate even when we’re land-locked in chilly autumn.

Haig Club, by LOVE
Is this a high-end perfume or the dreamiest flask ever? Neither, actually. The label-less, electric blue bottle is a much-needed identity refresh for the world’s oldest Scotch whisky distiller. While the glass itself is a head-turner, the embossed type and copper stopper keep things classic with a tastefully understated nod to its heritage. Now you can order an old-timey Rob Roy and still look oh-so-contemporary.

Blossa Annual, by Scandinavian Design Group
The designers behind the annual design of Blossa, the wanderlust wine, return with another stunner, just in time for mulled wine season. This year the wine was inspired by foggy London and the locale’s famed Earl Grey tea. But we love how the look doesn’t try to mimic fine china—it channels all its elegance without overdoing the precious aesthetic.
