Das Horn Drinking Vessel is Awesome

We at Urbasm try to use the word, awesome, sparingly. There are only a few occasions in retail when something truly deserves such recognition.

COTM – Brain Freeze

There are a lot of cleverly packaged products out there that sadly mask nothing but a poor execution to a so-so idea. Thankfully for today’s COTM, Crystal Head Vodka is not one of them.

We’ll skip past all the brewmeister jargon about how it is brewed with special peat smoked, chocolate malt, and champagne yeast… and get right down to its alcohol content, which is 67.5 percent. Get it […]
