bloody courage

great packaging, and perfect for the season. 

"This is an absinthe bottle I designed for an alcohol packaging assignment. I took inspiration for the name "baïonnette" and design of the bottle from the earliest big consumers of absinthe, the french soldiers in the Algerian war. They used this spirit as a way to get courage, as well as for therapeutic purposes to treat the soldiers and colonists against typhoid and malaria. I like the cold, clean, brutal and sharp look of a bayonet, and think it suits such a strong spirit such as absinthe."
