Crystal Head Vodka: Filtered through DIAMONDS.

#1 Posted by TooWalrus (13139 posts) -

The guys discussed Crystal Head Vodka on this weeks Bombcast, which is awesome. I've been interested in getting my hands on a bottle of this for awhile now. I actually convinced my mother to buy me a bottle for my birthday in May.

Check out this video. It's apparently some pretty high-quality alcohol, although filtering it through 5,000,000 year old diamonds is probably pointless. I can't wait until I get mine.

So they filter the vodka through diamonds, and said vodka is then encrested into a bottle shaped like a skull.


Why does 50 Cent not own twenty cases of this?

I swear if I drink this I'm gonna turn around, tell one of my friends to take and hide the skull, and then we will play "Bitch, where my skull?"

I was kind of interested in this before, but now that it's filtered through diamonds... Damn, that's so gangsta'.

#5 Posted by iAmJohn (6110 posts) -

I haven't started the episode yet; do they make any mention of where you can find this stuff?

Damnit! I don't pay attention. That video is crazy.

Anyone who does not fill out the "Contact Us" stuff asking how to get some of this...as well as pointing out how fucking bonkers Dan Ackroyd has gone about simply getting drunk...


...needs to be taken to the gallows IMMEDIATELY!
#12 Posted by Weltal (2272 posts) -

I feel this is relevant.

I just received a bottle in the mail today. 


Pictures and stuff don't do it justice, that bottle is so awesome dude. 
Haven't tried it out yet but I can't wait to.

I got it for $45 on ebay.

he also makes Patrone, a damn good tequila. He's not going bonkers, he just wanted to make his vodka stand out- and boy did he do a great fucking job. this shit looks so awesome on my bar.

I found a bottle of this stuff in a half ass liquor store in Tahoe that doesn't even have a wide range of alcohols. Looked at the price... $500. I don't know how you got it so cheap TwoOneFive, but I am very jealous.

what?! that guy was fucking retarded. 
It is listed as $50, but i suppose anyone is allowed to sell it for however amount they want. 
god damn though, i mean, for that absurd amount he deserves to get in trouble for charging so much. no vodka is worth that much. The second I saw it for $50 or best offer on ebay i bid 45. next day i won it. i was blown away, i thought for sure someone else would have outbid me. lucky as shit i guess. 

Coolest thing about it is, even though I hear the vodka is top knotch (quadruple distilled and triple filtered and it supposedly it has a sweet after taste) the bottle itself will be used forever. I doubt I'm going to buy another, I'll just buy a bottle of cheaper, yet quality vodka, to refill it. shit i might even buy some absinthe for it. 
here's my bottle just so you know i'm not bluffing.

Well I know for sure that it said $500 because I asked the guy if this was the correct pricing and he said "Yes." But I did take a picture of it too.

Yeah thats it alright. what a dick. 
He's seriously gonna make a $450 profit on that. Hopefully nobody is dumb enough to pay for it though. if i could find it for $45 plus shipping (came out to like $58 i think, which is still a sweet deal) then so can you. 

also, by the looks of it, that actually looks a bit different than mine. the cap is slightly different. mind doesnt have those grooves in the cap and there is as much air inside the top of the bottle either. my guess is its not even the same thing- maybe he drank a shot.

oh and ebay can sell it because of a weird loop in which you can't sell alcoholic beverages, but, you can sell a collectible bottle without recognizing the contents within.

Damn TwoOneFive you got lucky, around here it's going for at least €200. Maybe yours is just full of water.

@TwoOneFive: so is Absinth 

I'm planning on buying a bottle of this badass shit in the near future.

You should show it off in style with this. I couldn't stop laughing at it. You should get it.

I live in Ireland and saw one on sale at an off-licence for €200, probably imported.
#25 Posted by jNerd (2011 posts) -

I 100% have to get this now, I've heard about it long enough & deserve to try a swig or 8. I'm going to eBay!

thats a ripoff though, that thing was not made for crystal head vodka, its just a standard light stand. i could buy one locally for cheaper. definitely looks cool though i want it for it. anything less wouldnt do it justice.

Well, it's been more than two years now since my mom decided she didn't want to buy booze for a minor- but today is my 21st birthday, and what was the first thing I bought? (Actually, it was a 1.75 liter bottle of Jack Danials, but what was the second thing I bought?

@TooWalrus: So, how is it?  Does it taste of diamonds?  Is it as gangsta as you've hoped and dreamed?
#29 Posted by Claude (16254 posts) -

Happy Birthday! Get crunked.

#30 Posted by TooWalrus (13139 posts) -
@Hailinel: Haven't opened it yet- I might just let the bottle sit at my bedside for awhile, i've got more then enough expensive liquor here to do the job- plus I'll be goin' out tonight.
