Just in time for the season of remembering the dead, Baltimore Spirits Company is branching out with a new gin dubbed Skeleton Spirit.

This new animated promo video from Human Being Productions tells the origin story for the forthcoming spirit, a light-blue variation on the company’s flagship Shot Tower Gin that’s been around since 2015.


While the Baltimore Spirits Company has put out a few versions of its famously Baltimore-made Epoch Rye, Nov. 1 will mark the first time it’s released a new take on the botanical-infused booze that helped the firm launch four years ago.

“We wouldn’t want to compete with Shot Tower Gin, so it had to be something remarkable, and completely different on the gin spectrum,” Max Lents, the company’s CEO, said in a statement. “We think everyone will want both.”

Skeleton Spirit is 90 proof (45 percent ABV) and is made with juniper, eucalyptus, aloe vera and 11 other “secret ingredients,” per a release. The color, seen above, is meant to “evoke an ethereal, otherworldly vibe.”

Bottles will be available for $32.99 apiece at Maryland liquor stores starting next Friday. The company is planning to distribute Skeleton Spirit nationally sometime next year.

You can get first dibs on a taste at the Nov. 1 release party, which will double as the Baltimore Spirits Company’s fourth-anniversary bash. It’ll be at Union Collective and include cocktails and food from Phil Han’s Sugarvale and Dooby’s, respectively, plus live music from DJ Cian Noteman, a photo booth and a just-barely-post-Halloween costume contest. Details and tickets here.
