Crystal Head Vodka 1.75L: A Deep Dive into a Smooth Spirit (with Serving Suggestions)

Standing out from the crowd with its iconic crystal skull bottle, Crystal Head Vodka is more than just a conversation starter. This award-winning spirit, available in a generous 1.75L size at The General Wine, offers a clean and smooth taste perfect for discerning vodka drinkers. But what exactly lies beneath the unique facade? Let's delve into a detailed tasting note of Crystal Head Vodka, exploring its aromas, flavours, and ideal serving suggestions.

Crystal Clear: Examining the Production Process

Crystal Head Vodka hails from Newfoundland, Canada, where it undergoes a meticulous distillation process. Crafted from locally sourced, high-quality peaches and cream corn, the spirit is quadruple distilled into a neutral grain spirit. This ensures a clean and smooth base, free from impurities. The vodka is then blended with pristine water from Newfoundland, further enhancing its purity.

But what truly sets Crystal Head apart is its unique filtration process. The vodka is filtered seven times, with three of those filtrations employing layers of semi-precious Herkimer diamonds. These quartz crystals are believed to contribute to an exceptionally smooth and polished final product.

Unveiling the Spirit: A Tasting Journey

On the Nose: The first impression of Crystal Head Vodka is one of clean neutrality. Subtle hints of fresh green grass and a touch of white pepper may emerge, offering a refreshing invitation. Some enthusiasts might even detect delicate citrus notes, adding a touch of complexity.

On the Palate: The smoothness of Crystal Head Vodka is immediately apparent. It coats the tongue with a silky texture, devoid of any harshness or bite. As the spirit develops, a touch of spice and sweetness might emerge, balanced by a subtle, earthy grip that some describe as reminiscent of agave. The overall flavour profile remains clean and elegant, allowing the vodka's inherent quality to shine through.

The Finish: Crystal Head Vodka boasts a medium-length finish that echoes the initial impressions. Lingering notes of green grass, pepper, and citrus create a refreshing and satisfying conclusion. The overall experience is one of exceptional smoothness and purity, making Crystal Head a perfect base for various cocktails.
