325 years ago, the Nolet family, who created Ketel One Vodka, opened their distillery. To commemorate the gargantuan milestone appropriately, the celebrations are set to be just as huge. Nodding back to creation of the spirit, Ketel One will be available in a copper matte plated bottle, limited edition, of course.
Just in case you didn’t know the ins and outs of vodka distillation, a copper pot is involved, we’re told, hence the use of the precious metal for the keepsake version of the bottle. Eleven coins decorate the bottle, representing each of the generations of Nolet distillers, with the current distillers’ signatures featured on the back.
The Nolet family celebrated last week with a party at the Schiedam distillery and are recreating the atmosphere for customers at Brunswick House, London on the 25th and 27th of May. Working with chef Jackson Boxer, the family have created a bespoke menu with accompanying Ketel One cocktails. Fancy a preview? The dishes served include Squid Alla Vodka with Caviar to start, Dry-Aged Brisket with a Horseradish Pannacotta as a main and a Rhubarb and Ginger Compote with Pistachio to finish.
