We know it's what's on the inside that counts... but when it comes to spirits, it certainly doesn't hurt for the outside to look damn good, too. These 15 bottles have it all: bangin' flavour and swoon-worthy aesthetics. Time to level up your home bar with some seriously gorgeous booze!
The vintage vibes are strong with Cordusio, which launched at the beginning of 2023 and has already earned pride of place on our booze shelf thanks to its bitter red-berry flavour and its good looks. This aperitivo is bottled in scarlet-tinted glass with geometric lines that recall the Art Nouveau buildings of Piazza Cordusio in Florence, the brand's namesake. Bella!
POV: you saw the Barbie movie trailer and now you wanna paint your life pink. Tequila Komos is here to help with the dreamy candy floss-coloured, ceramic-glazed bottle of its Reposado Rosa expression, which just landed in the UK. Plus, the tequila itself gets a rosy hue from two months spent in French oak barrels previously used to age red wine. That's right: pink tequila is officially a thing!
Love a bit of animal print? Luxury Cuban rum brand Eminente has ya covered with its awesome glass bottle, which is textured to look like crocodile skin. Together with the crocodile-shaped island on the label, it's a nod to Cuba's rich wildlife population - and you might just get a little wild yourself when you're sipping the liquid inside.
Leave it to the terroir-focused whisky mavericks at Ireland's Waterford Distillery to create a bottle that's a true work of art. The label for their Irish single malt whisky The Cuvée features Irish artist Leah Hewson's piece Binary Assimilation against a backdrop of blue glass with decorative ridges, with a glass stopper that takes things to new levels of luxury.
If James Bond drank gin (he's a vodka guy, remember?), we reckon this is the bottle he'd keep on his bar cart. No.3 Gin's design is sleek AF, with turquoise-toned glass and the brand's signature key front and centre. Pure elegance.
This Italian aperitivo is a staple of our booze cabinet 'cos it's absolutely banging in a Negroni Sbagliato, doing double duty for both the red bitter and the sweet vermouth - and 'cos it's easy on the eyes. Savoia's bottle is modelled after the dome of the Mole Antonelliana, the famous building in Turin, Italy, in clear glass that shows off the ruby-red liquid inside. Stunnin'.
A unique spirit in both its flavour profile and its presentation, Horse With No Name combines bourbon and habanero pepper for a spicy sip that'll hit the spot for all the Picante lovers out there. We're obsessed with the bottle's flask-inspired shape and retro design - its label nods to both vintage pinball machines and the wild west. Yeehaw!
Coffee liqueur maker Mr Black consistently nails it with the designs of its limited-edition releases (courtesy of Brooklyn creative studio The Young Jerks).

Art Deco your vibe? This is the bottle to snap up. St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur looks like it belongs on the booze shelf of Jay Gatsby or the back bar of the Moulin Rouge in its hard-partying heyday. Keep it in your collection and add a splash to a glass of Champagne to channel your inner Daisy Buchanan.
When ya need a little meaning in your life, get your mitts on some Hibiki Harmony. This mellow, easy-sipping Japanese whisky comes in a multi-faceted bottle that's dripping with symbolism - its 24 sides represent the Japanese farming calendar, which was traditionally broken down into 24 seasons. Did we mention it also looks boujee as hell?
Mexico probably isn't the first country you think of when it comes to whisky production, but Abasolo is proof that it deserves a spot on the world whisky map. It's made from ancestral corn, for a spirit that's light, with notes of vanilla and roasted corn. Packaged in a satisfyingly heavy, rectangular, dark-tinted glass bottle, it's unlike anything else in your drinks cabinet.
Get the garden party going in your flat with a bottle of Amaro Santoni, a ruby-red Italian aperitivo packed with 34 botanicals and featuring a dreamy floral design and pink top. The bottle itself draws its inspiration from the architecture of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. Pro tip: this one makes a mean Spritz. Get mixing, take a sip and pretend you're in Tuscany.
This super fresh, floral and minty liqueur from bartending legend Salvatore "The Maestro" Calabrese and De Kuyper Distillers is one of a kind - and so is its beaut of a bottle, which was designed to look like a book. That's our kinda reading material!
Obsessed with the Big Apple? We've got a spirit for you. Brooklyn Gin's apothecary-style bottle brings old-school NYC grandeur to your bar cart, even when your living sitch is more Walthamstow than Williamsburg.
For all the sage-burning, Stevie Nicks-worshipping babes out there, Crystal Head Vodka's Onyx bottling is the one to spring for. It comes in a black skull modelled after its namesake crystal, which is said to absorb negativity. But even if you keep your visions to yourself, you'll wanna get involved with this vodka, which is made from agave and boasts a fresh, vegetal flavour.
