About Crystal Head Aurora Vodka
Crystal Head Vodka is produced by Globefill Inc., situated in Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada. The company was founded and created by Dan Ackroyd and artist John Alexander, the artist who created the distinctive glass skull that the Vodka is bottled in. The company prides itself on being free from additives, unlike most vodkas in the industry. The vodka is filtered a hefty seven times through Herkimer diamonds, giving it an incredibly smooth flavor profile. Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander designed the bottle to symbolize life, reflecting power and enlightenment.
Crystal Head Vodka is distilled from Ontario “peaches and cream” corn before being mixed with pristine glacial water from Newfoundland. The Herkimer stones that the vodka is filtered through are said to have healing properties, but they also impart a distinctive vanilla sweetness to the Vodka that is enhanced by a spicy kick. The finish is lingering with an intense vodka burn. Crystal Head is bottled without additives, glycerol, citrus oils, sugars, or enhancers.
Aurora is a newer Crystal Head Vodka expression, released some 10 years after the original. It's crafted with English wheat of the highest quality and the same pristine water from Newfoundland, Canada. The additive-free spirit is exceptionally pure, being distilled 5 times and filtered 7 times. The final 3 filtrations involve the Herkimer diamond stones. Celebrating the aurora borealis, the bottle features a metallic finish that changes color according to the angle of view in an iridescent fashion.
