The packaging for this craft gin is a throwback to the Empirical death doctors who would dispense a crude form of gin to treat plague patients. That historical detail is combined with quintessential west coast visual elements: ravens and touches of Haida art. The frosted black bottle and black wax closure are references to the black plague while the colour scheme, foils, and embossed details speak to the quality level of the spirit inside the bottle.
