Baba Yaga Absinthe

“Enrobed in the shadows of towering cedars lurks Baba Yaga, an iron-toothed witch and master of the elements.” This chilling description for Arbutus Distillery’s newest product, Baba Yaga absinthe, is merely the start of the curious journey that package design takes you on. Hired Guns Creative incorporates small and meaningful details to the sleeve and bottle itself.
Something about the disturbing smile on the bottle is equal parts creepy and enticing. The fine details — like the roots that create skull shapes, the gradual fading colors from yellow to green, and even the texture on each tooth — make Baba Yaga an exquisite yet eerie adventure.
