AnestasiA vodka by Karim Rashid: Drink up

AnestasiA vodka by Karim Rashid

AnestasiA Vodka is premium vodka packaged in a sensational bottle designed by his Majesty, Karim Rashid. It came to light this summer. And remains to this day this year’s object of desire.

AnestasiA is an organic-based vodka infused with a tingling patent pending formula. Surprisingly, it is not made in Russia or even Sweden, but in Bend, Oregon.

What makes this world-class spirit unique are basically its two taste-defining ingredients, Cascade Mountain spring water and locally grown organic corn. It is five times filtered through charcoal and crushed volcanic rock as well as five times distilled.

But the best part is definitely the futuristic bottle, comprised of a multitude of glass panels for a distinctive faceted look. This dramatic looking packaging strongly reminds us of processed obsidian crystals and carries the heavy signature of no other but the master himself, industrial designer Karim Rashid. The “sharpness” of the design is a perfect visual match and a distinctive reference to the clean, refined taste of a premium quintuple distilled vodka.

And, by the way, Rashid’s sharp bottle is manufactured in Italy by no other than the notorious Bruni Glass and it is made entirely of recycled materials.

If that’s no sensorial escape that deconstructs the day and tingles everything it touches (be it mouth, tongue, eyes), than there is none out there.

    I’m passionate about collecting unique vodka bottles designs…and lemme tell you I have this awesome collection of the best American vodka bottles on my shelf. Liquors brands share a major capital in market, so to differentiate between them each brand designs its own special bottle. Amongst all the AnestasiA vodka bottle design is my personal favorite…the design is so futuristic, edgy and gives it a sharp crystal like look!!

  • This is stunning. The packaging truly augments the contents. Can’t imagine how many iterations were done to get the angles right! This isn’t packaging–it is a glass art piece embracing a distinguished product.
