Ketel One Botanicals are made by infusing Ketel One vodka with natural botanicals and then re-distilling the infusion in a copper pot still. The distillate is then infused with the natural fruit and botanical essences relevant to each varietal.
A particular variety (Prunus persica) of fruity white peach is used due to its floral notes with extraction by hydro-distillation.
The species of orange blossom (Citrus aurantium amara) used imparts round and bold orange blossom notes. A solvent is obtained by extraction with ethanol and a base made from aromatics from orange blossom via the solvent.
Contains no sugar, artificial sweeteners or flavours.
Serve long over ice with soda water in a wine glass and garnish with wedge of grapefruit.
Ketel One say their Peach & Orange Blossom, "is for those who enjoy lush, juicy white peaches and bold notes of fragrant orange blossoms."
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 08/03/2019
Pungent vibrant ripe peach and floral orange blossom.
Fresh peach flavour but without fruit sweetness (this spirit is bone dry). Superbly clean with white and black pepper spirituous spice and dry orange oils.
More floral on the long dry finish.
An intense clean peach flavour coupled with zero sugar and a 30% alc./vol. make this spirit relatively low in calories (apparently "40% less than a glass of wine", giving the Ketel One Botanical's signature serve (long over ice with soda) undeniable mass-market appeal.
