Spooky season is upon us, and everyone is wondering which meme to dress up as for the Halloween party. Whether you’re going all out or staying on the sofa to watch the new Candyman, be sure to (trick or) treat yourself with these fa-boo-lous cocktails using our Product of the Month – Crystal Head Onyx Vodka.
The Spooky Spirit of the season – Crystal Head Onyx Vodka
Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is the world’s first Blue Agave Weber vodka. Yes, you read that correctly! The ingredient that goes into making tequila is what this delectable vodka is also made of, and it’s the first in the world of its kind!
This rare distillation process gives this spirit unique character amongst other vodkas, which are traditionally made from potatoes and grains.
As with every other edition, Crystal Head Onyx is made from the purest, glacial water from Newfoundland, Canada. It is then fused with authentic blue weber agave from Jalisco, Mexico to climax to this stunningly crisp and smooth vodka.
Another spooky detail is Crystal Head’s founder – comedy legend and Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd, who lists Canadian vodka in his interests alongside bustin’ ghosts.
Crystal Healing or Crystal Head?
This rendition of Crystal Head is inspired by the healing crystal, Onyx. A stone which symbolises positivity, energy and power, properties that are packed into this vodka. The deep black hue of the stone is mirrored on the stunning packaging, with the signature skull themed bottle coloured black.
Onyx is uplifted with the taste of citrus peel to add a soft fruity taste and an added touch of white pepper restores a warm balances to the palate, climaxing to a full-bodied and well-balanced expression.
