Using this curiosity aspect as base for his idea, Canadian actor Dan Ackroyd ended up designing special bottles of Vodka, each in shape of a skull.

The distillation has been done over a 4-stage process which includes refining the beverage over 500 year old Quartz crystals, and also ensuring the complete supply of any additives. This has ensured that the beverage is of the optimum quality, with a unique flavor, just the occasion it is meant for. Buy it here.
