Crystal Head Vodka is a vodka manufactured by Globefill Inc. in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The vodka was conceived by actor Dan Aykroyd and artist John Alexander. The vodka is quadruple-distilled and triple-filtered through charcoal and quadruple-filtered through crystals known as Herkimer diamond. The product is packaged in a cardboard box, sold in a clear glass bottle in the shape of a human skull that has a wooden bottle closure.
The skulls are manufactured by Bruni Glass.
Aykroyd and Alexander are interested in the legend of crystal skulls, which are thought to offer spiritual power and enlightenment to those who possess them, and as such stands not as a symbol of death, but of life. In 2007 conceived the idea for Crystal Head Vodka based on this legend.

Production of Crystal Head Vodka uses grain grown in the Chatham-Kent region of Ontario. "Peaches and cream" corn is used as the starting point as can be seen in their youtube video of the production process. The grain is processed and distilled four times at a government-owned distilling facility to produce a neutral grain spirit at 95% alcohol by volume. The raw spirit is then reduced down with water to 40% alcohol by volume. The vodka is then filtered four times through quartz crystals ascribed with mystical properties.
