Nine Utterly Gorgeous Tequila Bottles

The bottles of reposado tequila have been rolling in at a furious pace the past few weeks, samples for an upcoming Wine Enthusiast review column. What is it about the tequila category that inspires a product avalanche?

Although I can’t yet speak to what’s inside, I have been awed by the beauty of so many of these bottles. The designs are so gorgeous, I had to snap a few quick photos to share.

Gorgeous Graphics

These bottles are stunning, no? (From left to right:  Luna Nueva, Magave, Jose Cuervo)

Bold Shapes

Each of these had such bold, beautiful contours – squared-off shoulders, elongated pyramid, circular. The photo doesn’t quite capture the impressive tactile  heft of each of these bottles. (From left to right: Gran Dovejo, Oros Azul, Corazon.)

Is that a present, for me?

Around the neck of each of these bottles is a little something:  a guitar pick around the neck of the Corrido bottle, a leather bracelet (“for good karma”) around the neck of the Karma bottle. Why, how thoughtful, darlin’.

Tiki tequila

How awesome is this? A green glass tiki totem inside the bottle with tiki-style lettering and bamboo graphics and a green wax seal over the cap. My immediate cycnical thought was “oh, how clever, now they can put less tequila in the bottle,” but no, there’s still a full 750ml inside.  Know any good tiki drinks that include tequila?

  1. Don’t forget about the Milagro Select bottles: http://i.imgur.com/yb4MR.jpg !

  2. Tequila is such a great segment for unique bottles. I’d also include Kah, El Conde Azul, Republic, and T1, among many others, as worthy of recognition. ( pictures of a few posted here – http://tequilatracker.wordpress.com/current-collection/ )

    I have to agree –and thanks for sharing those links. Although neither bottle had arrived when I wrote this post, the Milagro Select bottle arrived soon after (with that spectacular pina blown inside the glass), followed by the genie-in-a-bottle T1.

    and tequilabob23, that’s some collection you have there!
