After making a name for himself fighting ghosts on the big screen, Dan Aykroyd is now making headlines for creating vodka that is sold inside large crystal, skull heads.
The vodka, which is appropriately named Crystal Head Vodka, has been the focus of his most recent public appearance. The actor was spotted in East Windsor at the Bottle King liquor store to talk about the product.
“This (vodka) is something that excels to be the best. We are the best vodka, a luxury, premium spirit and that is what I wanted to create,” Dan said.
Many people showed up to meet the famous actor.
Nick Twist explained his reason for coming to East Windsor. ”We are out here to meet him. I loved him in Sneakers. I just love Dan Aykroyd.”
Husband, Brett Lawrence, and wife, Emily Lawrence, were also eager to meet Dan Aykroyd.
“When we found out about it, I freaked out,” said Emily Lawrence.
”It’s great to (be able to) meet him,” Brett Lawrence said.
Dan Aykroyd has been successful in many iconic movies spanning his career such as Ghostbusters, The Blues Brothers, and Driving Miss Daisy as well as television shows such as Saturday Night Live. After making a name for himself through these avenues, he has decided to lend his hand to the liquor world as well.
“I’ve tried to do the best I can. I’ve had the number one movie, number one television show, number one record, I want to have the number one vodka,” Aykroyd said.
The vodka is made from Newfoundland water where the brewing process uses peaches and cream corn to create the flavor.
