All of the concoctions feature Dan Aykroyd’s — who starred in the original Ghostbusters Crystal Head Vodka.

Despite having a successful career, the actor decided he wanted to try something new, so he launched the brand alongside John Alexander in 2007.

"Crystal Head uses only the highest-quality ingredients to create unique expressions of ultra-premium vodka that are completely additive-free. We do it for all the creative spirits who think differently — to inspire them in their creative pursuits and to bring out their creativity, without compromise. Unlike other vodka brands, Crystal Head views the world differently, without limitations," the website states.

"It has taken us 10 years to put efficiency and cost control into our extremely complex glass manufacturing process," the Canada native said. "This knowledge has only come after a decade in the business with close to approximately 20 million bottles sold worldwide. Also on the marketing side we have evolved a better consumer identification which reveals to us a deep core of Crystal Head repeat drinkers. These are design and information technology conscious, college educated individuals and a growing constituency of female consumers who love our clean fluid. Zero additives, only 65 calories per shot. Smart people love the Head."
