About Ketel One Vodka
With ten generations of Nolet family distilling passion and expertise, the success of the KETEL ONE brand is built on one-to-one conversations with the bartending community. Launched in the United States in the early 1980s, Carolus Nolet Sr. was inspired by original recipes and techniques of his ancestors when he created the recipe for and distinctive personality of KETEL ONE vodka.
KETEL ONE vodka is a sophisticated and crisp, wheat-based, ultra-premium blend crafted from small batches, using copper pot stills together with modern distilling techniques. The 19th century coal-fired pot still, Pot Still Number 1, otherwise known as “Distilleerketel # 1”, is one of the pot stills used in the production process and is the inspiration for the name of this Dutch vodka. Each final production of KETEL ONE vodka is approved by a member of the Nolet family prior to bottling. After extensive research, KETEL ONE CITROEN® flavored vodka was launched in 2000, created by infusing KETEL ONE vodka with citrus essential oil essence. Two different types of lemon from Sicily give the flavored vodka a lively, rich sweetness, whilst one variety from Spain gives a full, distinctive taste. Lemon from Guinea, West Africa results in a more intense character, whilst two varieties of lime from the Caribbean give KETEL ONE CITROEN flavored vodka an incredible note of freshness.
KETEL ONE ORANJE flavored vodka was launched in 2010, created by infusing KETEL ONE vodka with orange essential oil essence. The vodka is infused with the all-natural essence of a select combination of Mandarin oranges from Italy and Valencia oranges from Florida and Brazil resulting in the flavor of KETEL ONE ORANJE flavored vodka.
In 2008, the Nolet Group created a 50/50 joint venture company with Diageo, KETEL ONE Worldwide B.V., to import, sell, market and distribute KETEL ONE vodka and KETEL ONE CITROEN flavored vodka and to maximize global growth potential for the KETEL ONE brand.
