About Crystal Head Onyx 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 it also imparts 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.
The impressive Crystal Head Onyx is a different beast. Crafted with blue weber agaves from a single source in Mexico, it's blended with that pure Newfoundland water for a super-clean and sweeter finish. It's a luxurious black skull-shaped bottle with a matching embossed cap. Onyx is a tribute to the human journey, the dark crystal supposedly possessing the power to absorb negative energy. A different vodka, it features green notes, earthiness, and sweetness that comes from the agave. The vodka is filtered the same way as their other expressions and contains no additives.
