Yes, this is going to be a visual treat for those who like to drink.
Had been to this liquor store in Colorado, with my friends. This is supposed to be the largest liquor store in Colorado and has been there for almost half a decade.
While my friends were picking up their bottles, I took a stroll around the store. I was fascinated by the colourful labels that some of the bottles had.
Designing a label (especially for a bottle) requires ingenuity. For example this one of Skinny Girl has four varieties, and the one which says “Island Coconut” makes it look like as if half a coconut is inside the bottle.
The shape and the size of the bottle too have to match the name, when you compare this with the Livingston.
This Momo Kawa reminded me of my school days when I used to come home with ink sprays on my uniform almost everyday to the exasperation of my mother.
The collection of bottles here is from all over the world. Like the Vieux Telegraphe which is from France
The label of Alice White makes it obvious that it is from Australia
More from Australia
I like this simple sketch and the colour scheme used for these Red Wine bottles (they are from north eastern Spain)
Cono Sur from Chile – the bicycle represents their spirit of innovation, passion, commitment and respect for environment.
Maybe M F Hussein could have thrown some light about the drawing on the label of Lagar.
Like this simple design of the Wine from Germany (Riesling) Wonder what that conch is doing at the top.
This bottle has a painting by the famous artist Gaby Hahn.
This Pinot Grigio is made from grapes hand selected from some of the best sites along the Italian border in Slovenia.
A Chianti wine is produced in the Chianti region in central Tuscany.
The Ladoucette family have been producing wines for over 600 years in their 165 hectare estate of Chateau di Nozet in Pouilly (France)
What a unique way to name a brand. Seven Daughters is a blend of seven carefully chosen grape varieties, crafted together into a sophisticated yet fun wine.
Flame Thrower will attract any one’s attention. Schnapps is a term that refers to any kind of strong alcoholic beverage. The English “schnapps” is derived from the German Schnaps.
Liqueurs are a class apart. What a way to seal a bottle. Reminds me of the good old Post Office and their seal and the sealing wax.
This Hazelnut Liqueur has a story. According to legend Frangelico lived three centuries ago in a hilly area bound by the river Po. He lived as a hermit and through his love of nature and knowledge of its secrets, created unique recipes for liqueurs. The most precious one of all was one of liqueur made from wild hazelnuts with infusions of berries and flowers to enrich the flavour.
Well, the shape of the bottle looks convincing which includes the Cincture around the waist. (Brother Juniper?)
Another one from Ireland, Saint Brendan’s Irish Cream Liqueur.
Like this container of Corn Whisky
Are these mugs for the Moscow Mule? I don’t know but these copper mugs are a familiar sight in pubs. The christening of the Moscow Mule is an interesting story as per Wikipedia
This may look like some fancy stuff but these Vinocopia Wines has developed a barrel in which you can store your wine. So when guests arrive, you can fill their glass from a tap. Ever wondered how the wine is stored in this wooden barrel?
OK, all this is coming from a teetotaler, so you may have to verify the authenticity of all what I said above.
