Last week I headed into Soho to celebrate the launch of a new vodka in London from a familiar face. Yes, folks, I got to sit with the one and only favourite Ghostbuster…. Dan Aykroyd. Now for those of you that are familiar with my style you’ll know that I’m obsessed with skulls in fashion. I can’t get enough Alexander McQueen scarfs or Thomas Wylde fashion and bags. So when I heard there was a new vodka that came in a skull-head glass, I was out like a rocket to cover it for you guys.
Dan Aykroyd launched the vodka in a club in London with over 250 gathering for glimpse of the man himself and a special performance from our favourite Blues Brother. I’ll just come out and admit that it wasn’t the Vodka that had me out that night… it was Dan. However, I do consider myself a bit of a Vodka buff as it’s just about the only spirit I drink and I was pleasantly surprised with the cocktails they were serving. I had my meet and greet with Dan and then took to the bar to cool down after meeting one of my favourite Hollywood actors. After two delicious cocktails I was ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the show (see video below).
So here’s the skinny on the Vodka. It’s free from all additives, comes from the deep glacial waters of Newfoundland and is triple filtered through 500 million year old diamond crystals. Crystal Head Vodka was launched in the USA in 2008 and has already received several prestigious awards. Who knew…. Dan is THE vodka man. Amazingly, in its first 18 months it’s outsold both Belvedere and Grey Goose with over one-million bottles sold. Oh and do I need to mention again that it’s sold in a bad ass skull? I absolutely love that!
For those of you in London you can find the Vodka at Selfridges and Fortnum and Mason for £49.99
