Prized for its smooth taste, Ketel One starts with the finest wheat and water. As the distillate is heated over a gentle, hand-stoked fire, the temperature and alcohol levels are regulated to ensure the best possible vodka. Not surprisingly, Ketel One has a developed a passionate following among vodka connoisseurs. The Nolet family of Schiedam, Holland, has been distilling for more than 300 years. The formula for Ketel One vodka was inspired by the Nolet family’s ten generations of distilling experience. Settling for nothing less than perfection, a member of the family still tastes each batch of vodka before it is released.
