Bottle Signing* Dan Aykroyd & Crystal Head Vodka
September 28 · 5-7 p.m.
Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection
330 East Waterfront Drive, Homestead
Charge your proton pack and polish up your conehead because Dan is back! Famed actor and entrepreneur Dan Aykroyd is coming back to the 'Burgh. Dan will appear at Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection in Homestead in late September. The star of TV and movies returns once again to meet fans and sign purchased bottles of his Crystal Head Vodka.
Crystal Head Vodka was created and founded by Dan and his partner, artist John Alexander, in 2007. A very limited number of Crystal Head John Alexander Artist Series bottles will be available to purchase at this event. John is the creator of the signature Crystal Head bottle, an exact rendering of a human skull. He is a renowned American artist whose work can be found in museums across the U.S., including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and private collections worldwide. The evocative bottle finish on the Crystal Head John Alexander Artist Series bottles is derived from John's expressive 1988 oil painting "Dancing on the Water Lilies of Life," currently in the Dallas Museum of Art. These are online exclusive items that will be sold at the store that night only. Be sure to buy yours at the event.
The vodka is quadruple-distilled and seven-times filtered, with the final three filtrations through Herkimer diamond crystals. The Aurora offers a drier, bolder and spicier vodka while staying true to the Crystal Head style. So if you are a fan of vodka or Dan Aykroyd - or both - you won't want to miss this event.
*Please note that Dan will sign only one additional item per person, other than purchased bottles of Crystal Head Vodka.

One of only a few people to have the opportunity to drink first-growth Bordeaux and Burgundy from the casks stored in the deep and dark caves of their original vineyards, he has also visited almost every vintner in the Napa and Sonoma valleys of California, sampling their spectacular wines, and tried the vintages of Cyprus, North Africa and many other great wine-producing regions, all while standing among their vines.
O'Leary Fine Wines was founded to help give consumers access to amazing wine at an accessible price. You won't want to miss your chance to meet Kevin and taste his outstanding Cabernet.
