Crystal Head Vodka's new bottle is cool!
I will start this out with a confession: I am a big fan of Crystal Head Vodka.
The first time I saw one of their skull bottles I thought it was one of the coolest things I had seen. I then met the team behind it at ork events and they were, simply put, some of the nicest people I have worked with.
For those who have not discovered Crystal Head, it was founded in 2008 by artist John Alexander and comedian and actor Dan Akroyd. Yes, that Dan Akroyd.
Unsurprisingly, the very cool bottle caught the eye of lots of people and has helped make it a massive success. The team told me they often get people asking if they can get their hands on an empty bottle just to put on a shelf at home.
To be honest, that is a bit of a shame becuase the vodka inside is really good. I wasn't a big vodka drinker for years (I had a bad experience at my 18th birthday party), but since I've gone back to it this is one of my favourites. The brand puts this, in part, down to the Newfoundland water which is used to make it.
But now Crystal Head Vodka have released a new look for their popular skull bottle - and this is very, very cool.
They've taken John Alexander's Dancing on the Water Lilies of Life, which is on show at the Dallas Museum of Art, and imposed it onto the skull bottle.
And it looks amazing.
I got a sneak preview of this in November at an event in Montreal. It looks and feels even better in real life than it does in the photos.
The drink inside hasn't been changed, so it will still be high quality there. But how good does this bottle look?
It is hitting airport shelves very soon and then will be in shops in August. It's going to cost about $150, but it looks worth every penny.
