crystal head vodka

THE FINEST VODKA IS UNTOUCHED. NATURALLY SMOOTH.

Highest quality peaches and cream corn is distilled four times into a neutral grain spirit and blended with pristine water from Newfoundland,  Canada. The liquid is then filtered seven times, of which three are through layers of semi precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds.

THE CRYSTAL HEAD BOTTLE WAS DESIGNED WITH A PURE SPIRIT IN MIND.

Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander wanted to craft a vessel worthy of one of the world’s purest vodkas. A symbol of life, reflecting power and enlightenment, to hold their award-winning white spirit of super natural purity.

Crystal Head contains no additives. No glycerol, citrus oils or sugars. Nothing is added to enhance or mask the taste.

Nothing but Pure Spirit.

When and where was Crystal Head Vodka first released?

Crystal Head Vodka was first launched in Southern California in September 2008. By November, the product had been launched in four other U.S. markets. The 5,400 cases initially produced quickly ran out. In turn, dealers in many areas were limited to one bottle per consumer. As demand could not be met, additional markets were not opened until 2009.


Since then, our premium vodka has won a number of medals in contests ranging from the World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, CA, to the Australian Liquor Industry Awards and the PRODEXPO in Moscow, Russia, where the fluid was awarded a gold medal in the category of “Excellent Taste,” in competition with 400 other products.

How is the vodka crafted?

The process begins with highest quality peaches and cream corn, distilled into a neutral grain spirit. The quadruple distilled spirit is then blended with the pristine water of Newfoundland, Canada.  Finally the vodka is filtered seven times, of which three passes are through semi-precious crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. Our award-winning vodka contains no additives. No glycerol. No citrus oils. No sugars. Nothing is added to enhance or mask the taste.

What are Herkimer diamonds?

Herkimer diamonds are semi-precious quartz crystals.  Beautiful examples of the planet’s crystalline deposits, these stones have no colored rutilations. The most significant deposit occurs in Herkimer County, New York.  Smaller fields can be found in both Oaxaca, Mexico and in Afghanistan. New Age belief systems profess that quartz crystals emit positive energy and are known to have properties that promote human healing and wellbeing.

 

What does filtering through Herkimer diamonds do to the vodka?

While your high-school chemistry professor would probably say that pouring vodka over quartz crystals does nothing to materially enhance the product, consumers do taste the difference. Though we can’t explain it, taste-testers who sample Crystal Head Vodka with and without the triple Herkimer diamond filtration, resoundingly choose the Herkimer diamond fluid.  When asked to articulate their preference, comments ranged from “It was smoother” to “It tasted the best.”

All this talk about vodka makes me thirsty...how about trying a Crystal Head libation?
