Many of us enjoy a drink (or two). In one of the most competitive markets around, Stranger & Stranger has separated their drinks packaging from the pack by carving them a niche image, powerful brand strategies and quite simply beautiful, beautiful designs.

From its work with low-cost supermarket wines to premium spirits, and curiosities like Kraken Black Spiced Rum to classics like Jack Daniel’s, the bespoke design consultancy prides itself on creating unique packaging in a market where designs across brands are so similar they often blur together.

With Stranger & Stranger’s devilishly detailed designs, you’ll want to buy the alcohol, drink it – and then keep and love the bottle forever. Many of the consultancy’s creations have an authentic, old-fashioned touch in the gorgeous typography, charming illustrations and imaginative compositions. 

Even if you don’t like gin, it might be hard to resist buying this extraordinary brown-blue bottle (shown), especially with its glittering gold stopper– even if it stays full-up on your shelf.

Here, we’ve collected our favourite Stranger & Stranger designs.
