Dan Aykroyd, vodka advocate and entertainer: S14E1

Crystal Head Vodka founder Dan Aykroyd

It’s not every day one of the Blues Brothers serenades you down the phone line.

Dan is on the show primarily to talk about vodka, specifically Crystal Head Vodka, the brand he founded in 2008, long before the recent groundswell of Hollywood actors getting into the distilling business.

We also get an update on his business interests in Canadian wine, and the challenges of launching the new Ghostbusters film during the pandemic.
