This year BACARDÍ rum unveiled the first update to its packaging in over a decade. Beautiful, crafted bottles deserve to be properly displayed. So, to celebrate the launch, BACARDÍ asked us to create two upcycled Crafted Cabinets that can be recreated at home.
The new BACARDÍ bottle is heavily influenced by the Art Deco style. The updated design reflects the brand’s unique heritage; the label features hand-cut fonts inspired by the exterior of El Edificio Bacardi, the brand’s former sales office and iconic bar in Havana, Cuba. The new packaging has a timeless quality, it would be just as at home on the shelf of a bar in 1920s, as it will be in some of the finest bars across the world today.
For this project we’ve created two unique and cool upcycled liquor cabinets. Both have handy printable instructions courtesy of BACARDÍ.
The first Crafted Cabinet is a steamer trunk bar. This sophisticated piece is the crème-de-la-crème of upcycled liquor cabinets. We’ve always wanted to make a bar from a vintage trunk. It’s a classic upcycle, perfect for proudly showcasing your liquor collection for years to come.
For our second Crafted Cabinet we wanted to create a liquor cabinet from old skateboard decks. The resulting skateboard shelves have an awesome raw and industrial vibe. These skateboard shelves make for a great entry-level upcycling project. They use minimal materials and tools but the overall effect is beautifully crafted. This project is perfect for anyone who wants to create an upcycled liquor cabinet with readily available materials.
The Bacardí family have pursued their passion for BACARDÍ rum for over 150 years. They blend their rum with passion and pride themselves on authenticity. We’re delighted to have teamed up with BACARDÍ to encourage more people to upcycle. Be sure to send us pictures of the Crafted Cabinets you create at home!
