    Problem: at first glance I thought these were salt and pepper shakers.

    Haha, I can see Calculon’s point. However, I think the size of the bottles would clear up any confusion.

    Yeah, I thought it was deodorant.

    many problems.

    Are the bottles plastic? That can never work. Plastic would ruin the vodka.

    Elk? I don’t know what animal is on the picture, but it’s nothing like the ones in Finnish lapland.

    The lagre opening on the bottle makes it impossible to use in a bar.

    sorry … but this package has nothing from what I’m awaiting to identify as Vodka bottle … looks for me like shower gel …

    The colours, the label are excellent. I can imagine the designer was thinking of using glass…also I think having a wide opening at the top is cool – i dont imagine its the kind of drink you’d be measuring out into shot glasses but pouring over ice in intimate company….

    could be wrong though!

    Excellent design work with packaging that makes it stand out. Its a different approach to the bottle and just to dismiss some of the people who commented on this product already and said they couldn’t tell it was a vodka bottle…the setting(liquor store shelf, bar, etc) would more than likely clear up that it was some sort of liquor plus it is clearly labeled as vodka. The simple graphics and clean design give it a sophisticated feel. It’s different and very interesting. I enjoy the design and the application.
