Possibly the most versatile Vodka, ever.
The Nolet family has been in the distilling business for a looong time. Since 1696, to be precise, when Nolet Distillery was founded by Joanness Nolet in Schiedam, Holland.
In the 18th and 19th centuries, Schiedam was the capital of Spirits and the Nolet family soon managed to considerably expand its distilling business.
In 1979, Carolus Nolet took over the company and this was the beginning of a new era for the Nolet empire. Carolus wanted to focus on premium Vodka and he was determined to create a vodka that tastes great neat or on ice and is perfect for cocktails.
The perfect Vodka, then? Anyway, he devised a recipe that included a combination of modern column distillation and copper pot stills.
The new (perfect) Vodka was a success and it was named after the distillery’s oldest, coal-fired copper pot still – Distilleerketel #1. It’s still fully operational to this day and you can see it on every Ketel One Vodka bottle.
Ketel One is distilled according to that very recipe with the winning combo of modern and traditional distilling methods. Crafted from carefully selected European wheat, the perfect Vodka tastes crisp and soft at the same time.
This is a classic and with good reason as it really goes with everything, Martinis, Cosmopolitans, Moscow Mules, Bloody Maries, you name it. It goes great with absolutely nothing, too.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Ketel One Vodka and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
