Dan Aykroyd’s Crystal Head Vodka Launches Onyx, An Agave-Based Vodka

Crystal Head Vodka Onyx

Crystal Head Vodka has released its third expression, Onyx. The new release from Dan Aykroyd’s skull bottle spirits line is one of the first commercially available agave-based Vodkas.

Made with Blue Weber Agave sourced from a single farm in Mexico, Onyx connects the growth of super-premium Tequila to Vodka. The new Vodka joins the brand’s two other expressions: Original, produced from Canadian corn, and Aurora, crafted from English wheat. Like all Crystal Head expressions, Onyx is blended with water from Newfoundland, Canada, and filtered through over 10,000 Herkimer diamonds giving the final product a clean and semi-sweet finish. Onyx does not contain any oils, sugars, or additives.

On the nose, Onyx features notes of fresh green grass, nuanced white pepper and hints of citrus. The palate is soft and smooth with a touch of spice and sweetness, developing into the subtle, yet unmistakable earthy grip of agave to finish. 

Not just a sipping Vodka, Onyx was also created to serve as an excellent base for cocktails, where it can be used for modern takes on traditional Tequila and Vodka cocktails.

“Creativity is at the heart of everything we do,” said Dan Aykroyd, Crystal Head Vodka Founder, actor and musician. “We love to push boundaries and strive to introduce consumers to cutting edge products that create excitement. With Onyx, we wanted to make an innovative liquid, an agave-based vodka, with an equally imaginative bottle to match. Onyx is unlike anything you have tasted before – it drinks like vodka but has the nuances of Blue Weber agave.”

Crystal Head Onyx comes in a glossy black bottle with a matching crest debossed cap. According to the brand, it is “a celebration of the powerful, warrior crystal: Onyx. Sharing its powers of intuition, focus, positivity, and protection to those who keep it close, Onyx holds connection to our earth with its protective energy allowing in no light. It combines all spectrum colors and is said to absorb negativity; the darker the stone, the more energy it holds. The new skull bottle acts as a protector for Crystal Head’s unique vodka expression and a symbol of the human journey. It focuses on positivity, calling on one’s inner creative spirit.”

Crystal Head Onyx Vodka ican be purchased for $55 per 750 ml bottle at select national and local retailers.
