Get in the Halloween Spirit with Crystal Head Vodka

crystal-head-smallHalloween is here and it is time to get in the spirit - luckily I just received news about a perfect drink to share with friends tomorrow night - or even to use as a decoration!

Crystal Head Vodka, created by screen legend Dan Aykroyd, is a super-premium vodka made with water from a deep aquifer in Newfoundland, Canada, blended with selected grains create a creamy and slightly sweet finish. Crystal Head Vodka is a “pure spirit” with no added glycerin, citrus oil, or sugar.

Crystal Head Vodka is quadruple distilled, then triple crystal-filtered through Herkimer diamonds, the final and most important step in production. Herkimer diamonds are quartz formations, or crystals that are mined in Herkimer, New York. New age belief  systems claim that Herkimer diamonds emit positive energy, an assertion that is validated by consumer tastings.
