Crystal Skull Vodka

I'm not particularly into skulls, or vodka for that matter; but when I saw this Crystal Skull Vodka in my local liquor shop's window yesterday, I was sold.
I convinced my husband we needed it, (for our guests who drink vodka) and we could always re-use the bottle later on. The power of packaging design has a pretty strong hold on me :)

Crystal-Skull-Vodka

About the Vodka: A quadrupled distilled vodka, filtered three times through charcoal followed by triple filtration over Herkimer crystals. Skull bottle designed by John Alexander and manufactured by master artisans in Milano's Bruni Glass Company.

  4. I actually love this vodka! My brother in law was given it as a gift for his 40th bday last year {he loves skulls and the like} and I've been lucky enough to drink it a few times :)

    Hope you have a fabulous day! Stay dry :)

  12. I'm a sucker for cool packaging as well and this is really neat. I love the idea of drinking out of a bottle shaped like a skull (even though I'm also not a big vodka drinker). Maybe this bottle could convert me though.
