In an interview with Dan Aykroyd, he states:
Regarding Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: "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
In the video on the official website of Crystal Head Vodka, Dan Akroyd talks about the crystal skulls as follows:
"Scientists estimate that it took between 300-500 years to carve one of these skulls from
a single piece of quartz."
"Navajo believe that
the crystal skulls were bestowed on their people as a gift from higher beings not of this Earth as a means of cataloguing
sacred cultural knowledge from the past, assessing the present, and foretelling the future."
"Contrary to the common perception of a skull as representing death, the people from
these cultures - the Aztec, Mayan and North American First Nations, for whom these artifacts possess sacred and mystical properties
- associate the crystal heads with a life-affirming symbology. In ancient tellings, the heads are living and sentient, sources
of knowledge, insight and power."
'Day of the Dead' is an example of how, in Latin America, the skeleton is celebrated as an icon representing life
beyond our corporeal existence."
Crystal Head Vodka is presently only available in select areas, however, due the successful launch that
has seen it already sold out in many markets, production is sure to expand to meet national and international demand for this
unique premium vodka.
It's suggested retail is just under $50 but special events brings the price closer to $100
for the 750 ml bottle.
