Multi-award winning, ultra-premium Crystal Head Vodka, known for its signature skull bottle, has tested the boundaries once again with the premiere of their first, limited-edition, John Alexander artist series bottle to commemorate a 10-year anniversary.
John Alexander is the creator if the signature skull Crystal Head bottle, a design that is an exact rendering of a human skull. He is a renowned American artist, whose work can be found in museums across the US, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and other private collections worldwide. Known as a painter of environmentally conscious landscapes and satirical figurative work, this evocative bottle finish is derived from Alexander’s expressive 1988 oil painting ‘Dancing on the Water Lilies of Life,’ which is currently on display in the Dallas Museum of Art. The decoration process of these limited-edition bottles takes place in a small artisanal workshop in Milan, Italy. Each of the 25,000 bottles have been hand-decorated by one of three highly skilled craftsmen, and then numbered to further emphasize its scarcity.
Artist John Alexander commented, “I am thrilled to unite this expressive painting with the unique design of the Crystal Head bottle to help create the first edition in the artist series. This bottle stays true tot eh signature style of Crystal Head and appeals to spirit drinkers and art lovers alike.”
John Alexander’s work is celebrated in this exquisite artist series bottle, housing the award-winning, Original Crystal Head Vodka. It is not only a beautiful keepsake, but also a unique opportunity to own a piece of his art.
“John Alexander is an exceptionally talented artist and has been involved in our creative process from inception,” said Jonathan Hemi, Managing Partner of Crystal Head Vodka. “It is only fitting that he designs this special edition bottle as we continue to introduce products that push boundaries and create an excitement our consumers gravitate towards.”
