Crystal Head



a keeper

[40%, sampled in Germany]

Crystal Head vodka. This Canadian brand is run by none other than TV’s favorite ufologist Dan Akroyd. On a side note, it seems to have a particularly wide following among those who aim to empty the bottle and turn it into a smoking device.

no Doctor Jones

I got this from my friend Steven from Canada. The first thing I thought of when I saw the bottle design was the most recent Indiana Jones movie. In hindsight I was lucky that I hadn’t seen it yet – my desire to drink from any sort of Crystal Head would have been instantly squashed.

Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

Crystal Head vodka is mostly about the bottle

The vodka itself is pretty good. It’s about as smooth as Nemiroff or Absolut, meaning it goes down easily and would do well in a mixed drink. Only the aftertaste lacks some aroma.

Obviously, the bottle design is awesome, but the price for anything that comes in a bottle this awesome is pretty high (44€/700ml).

what to do with this

I think you will be getting this one for the bottle, not for the vodka itself. So you could chill it or put it in a mixed drink, it’s all good. Then either use the Crystal Head to smoke (if that’s your thing) or to store other liquids in it (preferably infusions that you’ve made yourself).
