PA Liquor Control Board to host Dan Aykroyd at Fine Wine & Good Spirits in Hershey
HUMMELSTOWN, Pa.– The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) will host award-winning actor/writer/blues musician Dan Aykroyd on Friday, Oct. 21, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection Store at Hershey Square Shopping Center, 1158 Mae St., Hummelstown. Aykroyd will meet with fans and sign purchased bottles of his Crystal Head Vodka.
Since he joined the cast of “Saturday Night Live” in 1975, Aykroyd has written or starred in more than 100 television shows and films, including the original “Ghostbusters,” “Coneheads,” “Trading Places,” and “Spies Like Us.” He earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for “Driving Miss Daisy,” and was nominated for a Grammy Award for his triple-platinum album “Briefcase Full of Blues.” Aykroyd’s love of blues is well-known; he is one of the original “Blues Brothers” and co-founded the House of Blues, a chain of live music concert venue/restaurants across the country. As “Elwood Blues,” Aykroyd hosts the long-running “House of Blues Radio Hour,” which is syndicated on 180 radio stations through the United Stations Radio Networks.
When he’s not travelling, Aykroyd, a native of Canada, spends his time at his farm in Kingston, Ontario, and his home in Los Angeles.
In 2005, Aykroyd was granted the rights to distribute Patron Spirits throughout Canada. Patron Tequila is the number-one selling tequila in North America. In December 2005, Aykroyd entered the wine business in Canada.
The success of Patron in Canada prompted him to enter the U.S. marketplace in December 2008 with his distinctive Crystal Head Vodka, which is produced in Newfoundland, Canada, and sold worldwide. Highest quality peaches-and-cream corn is distilled four times into a neutral grain spirit and blended with Newfoundland’s pristine water. The ultra-premium vodka is filtered through Herkimer diamonds and contains no additives. The glass bottle was designed by renowned artist John Alexander and is crafted by leading glass manufacturers in Europe. Crystal Head won the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the Gold Medal for Excellent Taste at PRODEXPO in Moscow, Russia.
