The Dutch refer to their pot stills as 'ketels', thus this vodka is named after the Nolet's original 1864 'Distilleerketel #1' which is still used in the production process. Spirit distilled in this and other copper alembic stills is blended with highly rectified column still wheat neutral spirit.

One of the original, premium vodkas. Ketel One vodka is distilled from wheat grain using multiple column distillations, copper pot distillation, periods of resting and charcoal filtration.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 18/11/2020


Crystal clear, bright appearance.


Clean, mineral, wet flint with light white pepper spice.


Superbly clean with a slight cracked black pepper tingle and silky soft mouthfeel. Delicately flavoured with faint notes of fennel, citrus and sweet liquorice.


Cleansing, crisp finish with a lively cracked black pepper tingle.


The addition of a small amount of pot-still finished distillate to a superbly clean wheat spirit base adds character to this vodka but without the heavy notes associated with 100% pot still vodkas. Consistently one of our favourite vodkas since first sampling over two decades ago.
