Crystal Head Vodka

June 27, 2014 11:47 am

The premium spirit in a one-of-a-kind bottle, Crystal Head Vodka is releasing its largest bottle yet in a brand new 3 L size.

Naturally smooth, Crystal Head contains the best peaches and cream corn, distilled four times and blended with water from Newfoundland to provide its pure and pristine flavour. It is then filtered an additional seven times, the final three sieving through Herkimer diamonds.

Designed by American artist John Alexander, the bottle is manufactured in Milan. It is made with hand-inspected fine crystal to give it a vibrant clarity. Founding partner, Dan Aykroyd (yes, that Dan Aykroyd) and Alexander pictured this Head to represent an ancient legend held by some of the native tribes in the Americas. This legend states that 13 Crystal skulls were used to omit positive energy by the Navajo, Aztec and Maya peoples. The Head vessel as envisioned by Aykroyd and Alexander is meant to echo this kind of enlightenment.

Stylish, smooth and pure, Crystal Head Vodka is available at liquor stores across Canada in 50 ml, 750 ml and 1.75 L sizes.
