"Infinite Hope" started as my way of expressing what faith and religion mean to me. Over the past several years I have witnessed how religion has often been misused to separate and divide people. Throughout history, countries have fought countless wars that were based on the
inability to accept others' faith and differences.
I am a simple person with simple beliefs. I don't think religion should be about exclusion- I believe all religions should be based on unconditional love and learning to understand and co-exist with all of our neighbors (even when their beliefs vary significantly from our own). It should not matter what anyone's particular faith is- in my simple way of thinking, my "religion" gives me
INFINITE HOPE in this life and in the after-life.

Dan commissioned John Alexander to work on a skull container for the vodka.
"The vodka originates from an idea my friend artist John Alexander had. He's been going to the Mexican "Day of the Dead" celebration for some time.
He has been putting skulls in his artwork for years. He wanted put tequila in a glass skull and I said that's a brilliant idea but I'm the importer of Patron into Canada. [Aykroyd got involved with Alloy Brands four years ago]. So I'm involved with the greatest tequila in the world. I don't want to be associated with another tequila. That would be like Pepsi salesman drinking Coke.

I will keep you posted as that develops!
In general, male skulls tend to be larger and more robust than female skulls, which are more gracile. Male skulls typically have more prominent supraorbital ridges, a more prominent glabella, and more prominent temporal lines. Male skulls on average have larger, broader palates, squarer orbits, larger mastoid processes, larger sinuses, and larger occipital condyles than those of females. Male mandibles typically have squarer chins and thicker, rougher muscle attachments than female mandibles.
Swarovski crystal was first created when Daniel Swarovski invented an automatic cutting machine in 1892. In 1895 the Swarovski company was founded when he established a crystal cutting factory in Wattens. Here he could take advantage of local hydroelectricity for the energy-intensive grinding processes he had patented.
Swarovski crystal contains approximately 32% lead to maximize refraction. The Swarovski Crystal range includes crystal sculptures and miniatures, jewelry and couture, home decor and chandeliers. They also sell beads and rhinestones, encouraging other manufacturers, artists and consumers to create their own designs.
All sculptures are marked with a logo. The original Swarovski logo was an edelweiss flower, but was replaced with the current swan logo in 1988.
In 2004 Swarovski released Xilion, a new copyrighted cut designed to optimise the brilliance of Roses (crystal components with flat backs) and Chatons (diamond cut). Also in 2004, Swarovski created the 9 foot diameter, 550 pound star that tops the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree in New York City for the first of five consecutive years.
