Mezcal Manonegra

November 1, 2011 | 16 Comments

“Mezcal is the most ancient distilled spirit in America. It can be made of over 30 varietals of agave, most of them grown in the wild regions of Mexico. MN locates the best mezcal no matter how far or deep into wild we need to go to get it.

The handprint on our bottle represents the hand of the master distiller, the hand of the worker and the hand of the seeker of true mezcal.”

    Interesting idea. But it looks more like a bottle of medical liquid, rather than a bottle of liquor. Well, if that’s what they wanted it to look like, good job.

    I like the vibrant green color… almost looks like absinthe. I haven’t seen green mezcal before… very interesting!!

    Love the idea of the hand representing utilitarianism but it’s cut with the slight clinical prescription sensibility in the execution of the type which I think while it looks good contradicts the key themes.

    Interesting – from where I’m sitting this says ‘mouthwash’.

    Cultural difference?

    Indeed, from distance this may look like a bottle of “Limited Edition Listerine”, if you wish. Although some cultures might prefer to use liquor for mouthwash :)

    I love idea of encasing a traditional, hand crafted mezcal in a
    bottle with such “medical” features. It makes it look more
    functional and therapeutic. It’s different, it’s good.

    I too love the handprint, and the package is 100% utilitarian while cool and fresh at the same time, all the necessary info for a quality beverage is there.
    Obviously the glass is green, not the contents -just like tequila, a mezcal cannot be green-. Good job.

    I’ve been to Mexico many times and have seen many bottles of mezcal. This one is by far more interesting and different than most. And there is no such thing as green mezcal. It’s probably the glass color. Great idea!

    Definitely the glass color, you can tell when looking at the cork.

    It does read a little pharmaceutical. Not enough for me to assume that’s what it is though. I like it.

    Awesome! It’s new, it’s creative and it’s fun, just what a mescal bottle should be. Looks like THE ideal drink. Great job “Sociedad Anonima” looking forward seeing more designs! =D

    Coincidence or inspiration ?

    I initially thought at a fragrance of Mano Negra (Manu Chao). ^^ ;)

    Seriously, i think the graphic code of this fragrance are too close to the graphic code of Mano Negra… I was astonished oO
    The type & the hand are very similar those of the Mano Negra, isn’t it ?
