New work from Peter Schmidt Group GmbH:
"The perfect vodka is from Spain. The brothers Fernando and Esteban Banus are producing the most pure vodka of the world at present with Blat (from catalan: grain). This means that the degree of impurity is below the actual technical traceable level– even though Blat is distilled in the old traditional way.
Our design transfers this purity: in a clear
and puristic form and function with a logo which is just lucent and embossed.
The bottle consists of 100 % clear medical glass. The strengthened bottom
of the bottle and the special glass grinding at the bottom show the
haptic quality of a typical vodka glass. Advanced vodka – independent,
Challenge: Development of appearance of a new Vodka brand, including it´s name, bottle shape and the overall graphic design. The product is very pure Vodka of high quality proven in tests and analysis.
Concept: Our design transfers the purity of the product: in a clear and puristic form and function with the focus on transparency. The logo is just lucent and debossed. The bottle consists of 100 % clear medical glass.
Result: The design is showing the embodiment of the brands values of pureness, lucidity and high class in a homogeneous brand appearance with reference to beverage origin."

Prairie Organic Vodka
Via our friends at NOTCOT:
"Prairie Vodka’s got more behind it than just great vodka - it is actually the result of a “unique partnership between a 5th gen distilled spirits company and a co-op of over 900 Minnesota farmers who are stakeholders in the brand. The distillery has earned Oregon Tilth organic certification. Each batch is distilled as many times are necessary to yield the desired character and smoothness. In the spirit of self-reliance, the distillery converts leftover corncobs and other biomass to create biogas energy for powering the stills and returns distillers grains, a coproduct of distillation, to farms for reuse as feed. And because Prairie is crafted many thousands of miles closer than imported brands, far less petroleum is consumed to bring the vodka to market.” Oh, and it’s also certified kosher by The Orthodox Union. And did i mention the packaging was mind-blowing?"
Prairie Vodka was designed by Minnesota based design firm OLSON. Beautiful work!
Integrity Spirits is a Portland, OR distillery that makes small batch, hand-crafted spirits. "Integrity Spirits announced its presence to the world with two inaugural products, Lovejoy Vodka and Lovejoy Hazelnut. Lovejoy is a vodka that stands out from the crowded liquor shelves because of its design concept. Lovejoy Vodka comes with a variety of labels, allowing customers to choose the design that fits their mood, décor, or gift situation." Design by ID Branding.

Introduced in the US in 1989, FRÏS vodka is the culmination of a 500-year old tradition of vodka making. Created by the Danish master distiller Knut Mygund, who discovered the process of ‘freeze’ distillation (which allows impurities to be filtered easily from the liquid spirit), FRÏS was later acquired by Pernod Ricard.
Leveraging the rising demand for lower priced vodka, Pernod Ricard saw a clear opportunity to introduce an extended offering of flavored vodka (including cherry, grape and blueberry) under the FRÏS brand and took this opportunity to optimize its existing packaging design.
For this packaging re-stage, Pernod Ricard turned to the New York office of Dragon Rouge, who created a new icon for the brand (a stylized snow flake meant to embody the unique freeze distillation process), and optimized the packaging system to accommodate the new flavored SKUs. Sophisticated typeface, photorealistic illustrations saturated with color and color-coded medallions and caps help differentiate among the three new flavors while maintaining an overall clean, masculine look.
“FRÏS has a distinctly Danish ‘functional’ feel. While adding clear flavor cues, we wanted to build on this equity without diluting the ‘no nonsense’ image. A bonus for us was the chance to create an iconic mark to communicate the distillation process. The 6-pointed graphic snowflake represents the 6-stage distillation process - sometimes you just get lucky!” says Marcus Hewitt, Dragon Rouge Chief Creative Officer."
Hammer & Sickle Vodka
An exquisite design from Monahan & Rhee: "When Klin Spirits embarked on the launch of a new luxury Russian vodka, we were asked to develop the brand's core visual language. Beginning with the design of the bottle, we have continued to produce award-winning communications across every media form. Following its launch, Hammer + Sickle quickly became the best-selling luxury vodka in Russia."
