Wine supplier Bibendum has started to distribute US actor Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Head vodka in the UK.
The vodka, which is served from a skull-shaped bottle designed by artist John Alexander, has already proved a best-seller in the USA, where it has out-sold brands including Belvedere and Grey Goose.
The bottle’s design is inspired by the legend of the 13 crystal skulls, which are said to give spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them and were the inspiration for the recent Indiana Jones movie, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The drink, which is triple-filtered through “500 million-year-old diamond crystals” is retailing for £49.99 a bottle.
