Crystal Head Vodka
Crystal Head // Newfoundland, Canada
Crystal Head Vodka launched in the US in 2008 in California. It is distilled from a variety of corn called "peaches & cream" and is filtered through layers of quartz crystals known as Herkimer diamonds. The water used in its production is glacial water from Newfoundland where the vodka is distilled. The unique bottle was designed by John Alexander.
Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"Crystal Head Vodka is a competent corn-based vodka with aromatics of cake frosting and toasted corn. The palate is fairly light and has a notable sweet note that ends in a finish that shows a bit of alcohol heat. Not altogether bad but if you aren’t interested in the bottle shape, skip it."
