Crystal Head Vodka. Brought to you by Dan Aykroyd and John Alexander.
A quadruple-distillation process made Crystal Head as pure as vodka can be, but the quest for an almost mystical purity continued. As a final stage, the liquid was filtered through 500-million year-old crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. These quartz crystals are found in very few places in the world, including Herkimer, New York and regions in Tibet and Afghanistan. Perhaps because they share the raw material from which the original crystal heads were carved, they are thought to have similar spiritual qualities.
The most enthusiastic Ghostbuster is a known paranormal buff, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that he would be drawn to the crystal skull legends. He talked about the vodka a while back and mentioned some of his thoughts on UFOs and such:
Anybody you talked to professionally is immediately going to be skeptical. But don’t doubt your own experience. Don’t doubt. I know what I saw and what I thought. Listen, they’re coming and going like taxis! Get on the [MUFON] Website, you’ll see. And the flying humanoids in Mexico. They don’t even need ships any more. They’re up 3,000 feet and it isn’t [by using] a rocket pack. A rocket pack only keeps you up for about two minutes at 150 feet. They are sitting up there, humans in big white cloaks…. Anyway… I didn’t realize the Indiana Jones movie was about the crystal skull legends, which I have followed for 13 years. We designed a skull-shaped bottle from Bruni glass, an art piece which I think everyone will want. [The vodka] is a pure spirit from Newfoundland glacial pool water, and peaches and cream corn mash. We’re releasing it in October and calling it the “Crystal Head Vodka.”
OK, Dan! Nice chattin’ with ya.
It doesn’t look cheap, but maybe I should get some and do a taste test. FOR SCIENCE!
I’m thinking a full bottle might get me seeing some doods with rocket packs and white cloaks.
