Dan Akroyd Wants You to Drink Vodka…

September 27th, 2010

Dan Akroyd will sign one of these for you today in Vancouver. No lie.

His vodka to be exact — Crystal Head Vodka. And as strange as this might sound, he’ll be in the ‘Couv today from 3-5pm signing bottles of his strange looking hooch at Stateline Liquor Store.

I’ve scheduled this blog post because, as you might already know, I’m under sail in the San Juan Islands. I’m thinking that you, however, might just want to go shake hands with Dan Akroyd this afternoon.

I haven’t tried the stuff, although samples are on the way. The press release for this vodka was one of the strangest ones I’ve gotten in awhile. Check part of it out below.

If I was in town I’d be heading to Vancouver this afternoon. I don’t think I could resist meeting Akroyd and asking him about his vodka, which according to the press release is, “triple crystal filtered through Herkimer diamonds.” It’s your supernatural world Mr. Akroyd, I’m just in it.

Here’s some more info. straight from Akroyd’s PR peeps about his vodka:

The Ghostbusters and Blues Brothers star himself, Dan Aykroyd, will be in town on Monday, September 27th to promote his popular vodka, Crystal Head Vodka. He will visit Stateline Liquor Store at 1109 North Jantzen Drive from 3–5pm for a bottle signing.

Aykroyd, known for his work on Saturday Night Live and in films including Trading Places, Ghostbusters and Driving Miss Daisy, has been involved with producing and distributing wine and spirits for seven years. He recently created Crystal Head Vodka as a result of his fascination with the supernatural.

The super-premium vodka is made with water from a deep aquifer in Newfoundland, Canada, blended with selected grains for a creamy and slightly sweet finish, and triple crystal filtered through Herkimer diamonds, which, according to New Age belief systems, embody positive energy and goodwill. Crystal Head Vodka is available wherever fine wine and spirits are sold.
