Crystal Head Vodka’s stunning limited edition John Alexander Artist Series bottle is now rolling out with Gebr. Heinemann in Europe in its flagship Duty Free shops at the airports in Istanbul, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Vienna.
Created to the commemorate the 10th anniversary of Crystal Head Vodka, the John Alexander Artist Series bottle is the first limited edition for the ultra-premium vodka known for its signature skull bottle.
John Alexander is the creator of 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.
Alexander is 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 to the signature style of Crystal Head and appeals to spirit drinkers and art lovers alike.”
