Kjetil Olstad is an Australian design student whose future career seems very promising. When given the assignment to create alcohol packaging, Kjetil Olstad decided to create an absinthe bottle that follows the dark history of the notorious drink.

Absinthe is a hallucination-inducing alcoholic substance that was originally consumed by French soldiers. Thus, Kjetil Olstad decided to call his absinthe brand 'Baoinette,' with the design for the bottle pulling from the aesthetics of a bayonet and the blood of soldiers.
