Crystal Head Vodka has released a new extremely limited expression, Crystal Head Aurora, available this month through Dan Murphy’s stores nationwide.

To celebrate the release, founder, actor, musician, entrepreneur, and ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd is currently in Australia touring on- and off-premise locations that range Crystal Head.

Founded in 2008, Crystal Head is now sold in 42 countries around the world and has grown by 20 per cent annually since launching in Australia. The new Crystal Head Aurora comes in a uniquely crafted bottle with an iridescent finish, created to resemble the aurora borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights.

The ultra-premium vodka is made with high quality English-grown wheat from North Yorkshire and pristine water from St John’s in Newfoundland, Canada. It is five times distilled and filtered seven times, with three of the filtrations passing through layers of Herkimer diamonds.

Instead of exploring different flavours, Aurora was crafted using a different grain, which offers a drier, bolder, and spicier vodka while staying true to the Crystal Head house style.

On the nose, Aurora is crisp with delicate floral aromas and a subtle hint of anise. The taste profile is warm with strong peppercorn notes and a touch of sweetness. 

The vodka is dry and clean, with a warming sensation to finish. The new expression of Crystal Head is bottled in hand-crafted glass with an original, decorative finish and no two bottles are alike.

Aykroyd said he is thrilled to be showcasing the new Aurora bottle in Australia.

“Australians have been great supporters of Crystal Head Vodka and I think this new expression of the vodka will blow the Aussies away.”

This extremely limited, special edition bottle is available in 700mL in select countries, including Australia. RRP$105 and available at Dan Murphy’s nationwide.
