Ketel One Botanical Cucumber & Mint is 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.

Hydro-distillation is used to extract essence from fresh cucumber, botanical species Cucumis Sativus.

The mint Mentha spicata, metha pulegium, metha piperita, sourced from Morocco, provides a herbaceous and fresh mint character. Dependent on the species, solvent extraction and ethanol are used: essential oil by distillation of mint with ethanol; and solvent obtained by extraction with ethanol from a base of mint leaves.

Contains no sugar, artificial sweeteners or flavours.

Serve long over ice with soda water.

Ketel One say their Cucumber & Mint, is "for those who appreciate crisp cucumbers and light tones of fresh garden mint."

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 08/03/2019

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Cucumber is much more pungent than the relatively subtle mint.

Taste:

Initially cucumber continues its dominance, but mint emerges and grows in intensity. Light white pepper spirituous spice invigorates.

Aftertaste:

Lightly spicy with long lingering cucumber and mint.

Overall:

The cucumber and mint flavour, combined with the recommended long serve over ice with soda, screams for a long hot summer's afternoon. Zero sugar and a 30% alc./vol., so relatively low calorie (apparently "40% less than a glass of wine" add it its consumer appeal.
