A remarkably unique Vodka made from quadruple-distilled Weber Blue Agave.

Did you know that big-time comedy superstar Dan Aykroyd founded the House of Blues bar and music venues? It’s true. He is also a big fan of cocktails and when he couldn’t find a pure Vodka in the US without additives he founded Crystal Head Vodka with artist John Alexander in 2007. Each edition is quadruple-distilled and filtered seven times for purity. The last three filtrations pass through thousands of "Herkimer Diamonds" from New York State. Each Italian-made glass decanter is shaped like a human skull, inspired by the legend of the "thirteen skulls."

The first Crystal Head Vodkas were single grain Spirits — the first was made from Canadian corn, the second from English wheat. Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is made from 100% Weber Blue Agave just like Tequila. In fact, if it was only distilled twice, it would be a premium Tequila. Agave is one of the most expensive Spirits to make due to the time it takes to grow. We’ve never seen it used in a Vodka before. And that investment speaks loudly to the dedication to creating an innovative, quality Spirit. And the "skull" decanter this time is a brilliant, onyx black glass.

Smartass Corner:
"Herkimer Diamonds" are not actual diamonds. They are naturally-forming, multi-faceted quartz crystals that formed in soft, volcanic dolomite as it slowly cooled.

The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
