64° Reykjavík Distillery, an Icelandic startup company, has received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for the design of bottles for their liqueurs made from Icelandic berries and botanicals, crowberries, blueberries and rhubarb.

“We wanted the look to be pure and fresh like the liqueurs,” Snorri Jónsson, who owns and operates 64° Reykjavík Distillery along with designer Judith Orlishausen, said in a press release. The award ceremony will take place in Berlin in October.
