New Luxury Vodka Bottle Design
1st July, 2011
International product design agency, Industrial Design Consultancy (IDC), has just completed a project to develop a luxury vodka bottle with unique design appeal for upmarket brand, Nordic Spirit.
Classed an exclusive ‘super-premium’ spirit, the DQ Vodka is produced in Malmköping, Sweden, where the town’s water is traditionally renown for taste, quality, and distillation standards. IDC was tasked with designing a one-litre bottle that reflected desirability, luxury and uniqueness. The project involved developing and engineering all the elements of the bottle, whilst making sure that the design could be associated with the rest of the brand’s products.
It is a sleek, sophisticated design combining Italian glass, aluminium and satin chrome. As the vodka is poured, it is drawn through a central shaft and out through a nozzle in the centre of the lid, which enables oxygen to get into the vodka for better taste.
Additionally, there is the outer container, which serves as gift packaging for the bottle. Arne Olafsson, CEO at Nordic Spirit, comments, “The outer container redefines the genre, being made of aluminium instead of tin, with beautifully engineered details. This is yet another expression of the modern 21st century look and feel of the DQ bottle itself.”
