The Dan Aykroyd bottle

Yes, we know and love Dan Aykroyd for his great comedic turns over the years on movies and television. (Especially his spot-on impersonation of Julia Child .) But we also love the fine vodka he launched a few years ago, Crystal Head, a clean-tasting version of the spirit that’s also noteworthy for its skull-shaped bottle. Now, for the first time, Aykroyd has expanded Crystal Head’s lineup with a limited-edition version, called Aurora ($60). It has a spicier flavor and even more distinctive packaging. The bottle retains the skull shape, but it has an iridescent finish — it’s meant to recall the aurora borealis (or “northern lights”), so hence the name. As with the standard Cyrstal Head, it’s almost too much a visual stunner to open, so you might want to buy two bottles — one for showcasing, the other for sipping.
