Design studio Kaleidoscope presented this absolutely stunning product design for Mexican brand Canteen. Quite surely one of the most beautiful alcohol bottles I’ve ever seen.
“The Sauza, 1800 and El Jimador tequila brands have captured double-digit share growth while the category leader Jose Cuervo is in decline. The brands in the tequila market position themselves as being authentic and utilize old-fashioned, ethnic-based package cues. Since the category is really just stealing share from each other versus bringing in new users or switchers from other liquor categories, Kaleidoscope seizes the opportunity to redefine tequila through strategy and design. We transcend cliché visual elements and leverage luxury with inspiration from nightclub-culture denizens to create a disruptive, retro-cool package design with a uniquely urban attitude and swagger. The co-mingling of metal and glass, unconventional shape, love-to-feel-it closure delivers a wholly new experience to enjoy and be seen with. Embracing urban luxury, without the haughty attitude adopted by its competitors, Canteen achieved its mandate – giving high-end urban bars and nightclubs a delicious new alternative.”
