Comedian-actor and local area resident Dan Aykroyd is offering up signed bottles of his Crystal Head Aurora in a North American exclusive available only online at the LCBO.
Described as having “aromas of sweet grain and citrus [that] lead to delicate flavours of lemongrass and lavender and end in a smooth finish,” Aurora is the second of Globefill Inc.’s Crystal Head Vodka (CHV) line.
Both Aurora and the original CHV use pristine glacial meltwater from Newfoundland, with Aurora using English Wheat and the original recipe featuring Peaches and Cream corn grown in the Chatham-Kent region of Ontario. The distinctive and much coveted skull shaped bottle, designed by John Alexander and inspired by the legend of the 13 Crystal Skulls, has an iridescent metallized finish for the Aurora line – a tribute to the colourful shimmering Aurora Borealis and Aurora Australis, commonly known as the Northern Lights and Southern Lights.
At the time of this writing, only 41 signed bottles of 1.75L Aurora are listed available for purchase [make that just 39 bottles now – although it seems to vary] and each arrives with a certificate of authenticity.

First available in Australia in 2015, Aurora became available in Ontario LCBO outlets in July 2016. Earlier this summer, Aurora received a GOLD medal in the International Spirits Challenge 2019.
