Ketel One Vodka
When it comes to premium vodka including Ketel One Vodka, there are very few in the special zone of being damn good, and affordable. Ketel One Vodka is definitely in that special zone, and was defining the term “premium vodka” when Grey Goose was nothing more than a fat man’s wet dream, get rich quick scheme. The Nolet family have been bashing out hard liquor since 1691, so if that’s not a pedigree, then we don’t know what is.
Ketel (Dutch for: Pot still) One is a liquor brand of the Nolet Distillery in Schiedam, the Netherlands. Ketel One Vodka is distilled from 100% wheat in copper pot stills, filtered over loose charcoal, and rests in tile lined tanks until ready. Ketel One Vodka is named after the original copper pot still, “Distilleerketel #1.” The alcohol content of this spirit is 40% (80 proof (US), 70 degrees proof (international)). The Nolet Distillery also makes Ketel One Citroen, Ketel One Oranje, and Ketel 1 Jenever.
