Distilled Chicago Icon

Brininstool + Lynch Architects: Aberlour Scotch Bottle Box

Distilled Chicago Icon

Chicago, Illinois

Competition, 2019

The Distilled Chicago Icon scotch container pays homage to one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, Bertrand Goldberg’s Marina City Towers. Practical, innovative, and made for Chicago’s middle class, the towers represent the aspirations of Chicago in architectural form. Constructed of translucent injection molded plastic, just enough light passes through the case to reveal the golden glow of the single malt scotch within.
