Summon the Spirit

Ghost Tequila is a glimpse of the possibilities that wait for us in the dark of night. It’s a celebration of the unknown, the surreal, and what lies ahead. Like a match struck in the dark, Ghost is the spark of excitement that runs down the spine after the lights go out.

A mysterious fusion of ghost peppers and 100% agave tequila, Ghost will fill you with fire—a brief, transfixing possession that’ll leave you bone-chilled and breathless. Whether you’re getting your kicks in a seedy dive or holding court with the chic and refined, Ghost is the perfect fuel for whenever the spirit strikes.

Our Story

Our Story

We love service industry because we are service industry.

It all started with a Boston bartender. In 2011, Chris was working at a new tequila bar with 120 different tequilas that very few people wanted to drink. His solution: create a tequila shot that would grab attention, taste great, and go down easy. Through this process he realized that guests were looking for a little more spice in their night…and their drinks. The result was a ghost pepper infused shooter that became a reason to visit his bar.

And with that, Ghost was born–an affordable tequila so smooth that even the person with the worst spring break tequila story would enjoy. From at-home experimentation to distilling in Mexico, the hero of our story perfected the recipe that’s igniting shots and cocktails alike.

When you consider how many brands are brainstormed in a boardroom, a tequila born in a bar sounds a little crazy. But what began as a bartender’s passion project has exploded onto the scene. And through everything, our service industry roots remind us that we’re here to entertain guests, inspire bartenders, and serve a tequila that leaves you with memorable nights…without mornings of regret.

Taste

Ghost Tequila is a marriage of flavors from around the world–namely 100% agave tequila from Jalisco, Mexico and and the infamous, India-born ghost pepper. This 80 proof spicy shooter isn’t for the faint of heart and will linger on your tongue long after it’s gone. Thanks to a mixture of all-natural ingredients, we can guarantee Ghost will go down smoother than the swill you had on spring break–no lime or salt needed. But if you get your kicks with cocktails, Ghost is the perfect base for a Spicy Margarita or a Bloody Maria.

Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Soft Silky Texture balanced with mysterious subtleties from the Far East will leave your palate wandering through the dark streets with a bright light.

Mineralized under palate highlighted by citrus notes of lemongrass with a hint of lime are followed by an intriguing approach of heat.

Notes of Black and Pink Peppercorn are beautifully interwoven with Pomegranate to create a finish that is formulated like a gorgeously choreographed dance that will leave you breathless.
