Jeff Koons for Dom Pérignon

Zaha Hadid for Leo Hillinger

1 Zaha Hadid for Leo Hillinger

A liquid drop inspired this bottle for Austrian winemaker Leo Hillinger’s limited-edition Icon Hill 2009 vintage red, of which only 999 were produced. Hadid incorporated a concave indentation in its back so the bottles can interlock, plus a dimpled base for ease of pouring and to gather sediment.

2 Front for Ballantine’s

Swedish trio Front devised a beautiful balancing act for a 12-year blend of the Scottish whisky brand, which includes a spoon, a water jug, a drinking glass and an ice cooler, atop an oak coaster. The choice of wood references the casks in which the alcohol is distilled while the copper riffs on the aged patina of the distillation pans.

Nendo for Bombay Sapphire

3 Nendo for Bombay Sapphire

Oki Sato’s delightful lime pocket for the London gin company is composed of silicon for easy and tidy squeezing. It can also hold a lemon slice and snuggly sits on the side of a glass when not in-use.

4 Jeff Koons for Dom Pérignon

Adapted from Jeff Koons’ monumental Balloon Venus sculpture, this miniature version cradles Dom Pérignon’s Rosé Vintage 2003, and also comes in yellow for the classic 2004. Perfect for those with expensive taste, the made-to-order containers are priced at $25,000, or $205 sans sculpture.

5 Ross Lovegrove for G. H. Mumm

This curvy polyurethane lacquered casket by London’s Ross Lovegrove comes complete with champagne and a stainless steel sabre for a dramatic and ceremonial opening. The red pebble-like capsule acts to pressure seal the case.

Karim Rashid for Anestasia

6 Karim Rashid for Anestasia

For his faceted bottle composed of recycled materials, Rashid took cues from the icy, snow-capped Cascade Mountains that run through Oregon, which is where Anestasia vodka is distilled and filtered five times.
