We might not be able to tell our brandy from our scotch, but when it comes to bottle designs like the one Linea crafted for Noir King cognac, we are well and truly intoxicated.
The roaring ’20s in Harlem come alive with a fascinating combination of Art Deco bottle art, labeling, and a sumptuous hangtag complete with that distinctive Neenah Plike feel.
Noir King cognac creator Michelle Di Augustino says that she is “the first African American woman to independently create and launch a cognac in the U.S.,” and she has done an outstanding job of finding a design studio that completely gets it. We’re instantly whisked back to the Cotton Club’s heyday, bopping our heads in time with Cab Calloway. There’s only one problem: This is a work of art that needs to be displayed intact to appreciate the full effect – who could bear to drink the cognac within? Buy two bottles, you say? We’re way ahead of you 😉
