Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. For our first happy hour post of the new year, we’re taking a pass on diet-related resolutions and setting our eyes on becoming cultured globetrotters in 2016. And there’s no better motivation to stick to our #travelgoals than chic mezcal and sake.

Mal Mezcal, by Natalia Wysocka
Although “mal” translates to “bad” in Spanish, all we see is a perfect balance of jet-set luster and earthy jungle vibes. The teal color enriches the monochromatic illustrations, while the classic type and pencil-drawn label offer a luxurious and nostalgic look at Mexico. We love that the mezcal’s artisanal roots are underscored, without leaning on any hackneyed representations of the vibrant country.

SOTO, by SOTO Sake
Although the masses love a dramatic makeover, we’re swooning over the subtle infusion of contemporary aesthetics to the Japanese traditional drink. Without completely rewriting its design, this filtered sake opted for a natural, homemade look—from the dimpled bottle to the wrapping around the neck.

Isle of Harris Gin, by Stranger & Stranger
Because no vacation is complete without a picturesque waterfront, we give you this gin inspired by a Scottish island, full of dreamy white sand, blue waters, and green fields and mountains. All these stunning elements are packaged into this bottle, with grooves reminiscent of the waves and coloring that could pass as sea glass. The only thing missing from this beach getaway is the salty wind in our hair.

Chinese Bespoke Wine, by LOOVVOOL
The design team behind this wine collection alludes to the duality of yin and yang, and we see what they mean. Somehow these bottles simultaneously resemble ancient clay urns and packaging from the distant future with their strange silhouettes and wild color schemes.
