F1 Design; wanted to subtly align its motorsport design philosophy with Bacardi’s world leading brand image and create a concept that, ultimately illustrates a sense of ultra-high quality, exclusivity and engineering excellence.

Through this process F1 Design has endeavored to create two designs, both with a varying degree of complexity and exclusivity, from a full carbon fiber composite to a conventional glass bottle.

Oscuro – Finish and Features
A flat black bottle illustrates the complex darkness of the premium spirit within, Subtle UV responsive decals in the white and red bring the bottle to life in a club or bar environment. The Bat and “Bacardi” signature are clear coated to reflect a ghostly pretense dependent on viewing angle.
