PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Saturday Night Live legend is bringing his mystical liquor to Portland. Blues Brother Dan Aykroyd planned to visit Stateline Liquor on North Jantzen Drive in Portland at 3 p.m. Monday.

He will autograph bottles of his vodka, Crystal Head Vodka.

The "Ghostbusters" star has been in the distilling business about seven years and said that the Crystal Head was made with water from a deep aquifer in Newfoundland, Canada.

Aykroyd said that the mystery of the crystal skulls is embodied in many ancient civilizations.

"We’re talking about healing positive energy here. So we don’t put any junk in the bottle,” Aykroyd told the Portland Monthly.

The spirits are triple crystal filtered through Herkimer diamonds, which, according to New Age belief systems, embody positive energy and goodwill.

The smaller bottles run about $50, and $100 for the life-sized skull.
