Crystal Head is vodka like no other, for a life like no other. An exploration of extraordinary people, places, and ingredients. Beginning with an archaeological mystery dating back thousands of years, we arrive at the deep, glacial waters of Newfoundland, Canada. We continue on to discover the unique crystals of Herkimer, New York before finally making our way into the hands of unique individuals like yourself. And of course, this isn’t the end of the story. It’s the start of a new one. A controversial archaeological mystery, 13 crystal heads have been found in regions around the world, from the American southwest to Tibet. They’re dated between 5,000 and 35,000 years old, and were supposedly polished into shape from solid quartz chunks over a period of several hundred years. The heads are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them, and as such stand not as symbols of death, but of life. Naturally pure vodka had to be born of an equally pristine primary ingredient. The deep glacial aquifer water of Newfoundland, Canada became the perfect choice. As the easternmost landmass in North America, this vast and largely untouched island shares a mystery and fascination not unlike the crystal head legend itself. Fitting that the Crystal Head distillery chose ‘The Rock’ as its new home. The result was perfect vodka, with absolutely no additives. Nothing was needed, because it was abundantly clear that finely produced vodka came by its smoothness and flavor naturally. So in the end, the only things required were a glass and a pure spirit of one’s own.
Still using pristine Newfoundland water, Crystal Head Aurora vodka does away with the 100% corn recipe of the original and instead chooses to use North Yorkshire wheat. Not content with distilling it four times, the new Crystal Head Aurora is 5-times distilled and filtered through 500-million-year old Crystals known as Herkimer Diamonds. The result is a bolder, drier, spicier vodka with an incredibly smooth character and a warming finish.
