Crystal Head Vodka Unveils New Agave Based Expression In A Black Skull Bottle

Dan Aykroyd, who is now more famous for his spirits brand than his acting skills, has added another product to his Crystal Head Vodka range. The new agave based vodka is called Onyx and comes in a jet black skull shaped bottle.

“Creativity is at the heart of everything we do,” said Aykroyd in a statement. “We love to push boundaries and strive to introduce consumers to cutting edge products that create excitement. With Onyx, we wanted to make an innovative liquid, an agave-based vodka, with an equally imaginative bottle to match. Onyx is unlike anything you have tasted before – it drinks like vodka but has the nuances of Blue Weber agave.”

Onyx is distilled from Blue Weber Agave sourced from a single farm. The juice is made with water from Newfoundland, Canada and filtered through 10,000 Herkimer diamonds. The final project is free of oils, sugars, and additives.

Why is the bottle black? Here’s the explanation from the distiller:

Sharing its powers of intuition, focus, positivity, and protection to those who keep it close, Onyx holds connection to our earth with its protective energy allowing in no light. It combines all spectrum colors and is said to absorb negativity; the darker the stone, the more energy it holds. The new skull bottle acts as a protector for Crystal Head’s unique vodka expression and a symbol of the human journey. It focuses on positivity, calling on one’s inner creative spirit.

Crystal Head Onyx is now available at retailers in the United States and the 750ml bottles have a $55 pricetag.
