While many are keen on gawking at modern industrial design elements in furniture, electronics, and kitchenware, vials designed to hold spirits can be equally impressive in form. Here are TOMO’s favorites from across the globe:

Licor Beirão

Licor Beirão Premium is a Portuguese liqueur whose recipe is a well-kept trade secret. All we know is that its flavors are drawn from seeds and herbs originating from overseas locales like Thailand, Malaysia, and Brazil. For a spirit this worldly, a bottle of this caliber makes perfect sense.

Colier Elite Champagne

Design firm Reynolds and Reyner is responsible for this otherworldly champagne bottle/case design that dazzles and intrigues all at the same time. The bottle itself features a studded texture a la Alexander McQueen while the egg-shaped shell sports patterned indents that give a carbon fiber feel from afar. The bad news? This special edition conceptual bottle/casing no longer in production.

1,000 Acres Vodka

A seemingly perfect balance between minimalism and class is achieved with the 1,000 Acres bottle. The gorgeous forms you see above were devised by US-based design firm Arnell.

Hennessy Ellipse Cognac

As tasty as it is sexy, the $6,500 Hennessy Ellipse Premium Cognac is made direct from Champagne, France and sports one of the most receptacle designs we’ve ever seen. Designer Thomas Bastide fashioned this elliptical crystal decanter specifically for Hennessy to encase the wonderful bouquet that Hennessy cognac continues to provide.

Purus Vodka

Originating from the Piemonte region of Italy, Purus organic wheat vodka and its packaging take modern, environmental design to a whole new level. Gorgeous glass form aside, The Purus packaging features tree-free labels, a sustainable cork closure, water-based adhesives, and soy-based inks.

Kauffman Private Collection Vodka

Equipped with beautiful lines and aviary undertones, the Kauffman Private Collection bottle almost resembles that of a perfume repository. What warrants such a shapely bottle, you ask? Kauffman vodka touts its use of only the finest wheat crops (purportedly from years 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007) to create a truly vintage liqueur.
