Potentially the world’s most regal orange-based spirit. The Monarchy of the Netherlands come from the House of Orange-Nassau lineage and the colour orange has always played a huge part in the country’s national identity. So it was only fitting that Ketel One Oranje Vodka be released on the country’s national holiday held in April to celebrate the monarch’s birthday. Produced by infusing Ketel One’s legendary Vodka with Valencia oranges from Brazil and Florida and mandarin oranges from Italy, the crystal-clear spirit is tangy with mandarin, satsuma and freshly squeezed orange juice notes. Beneath all that citrus you’ll discover a creaminess reminiscent of posset and a spiced marmalade depth. Oranje Vodka can be sipped neat straight from the freezer, mixed into an unforgettable Sgroppino, or used as an alternative to triple sec or other orange-based spirits in classic cocktails.
Ketel One was voted “Best Selling Vodka” and “Most Trending Vodka” by The World’s 50 Best Bars Brands Report, compiled by Drinks international in 2015. This should come as no surprise considering the Nolet family brings more than 300 years of experience to their craft. Based in Schiedam, west of Rotterdam, their vodka is created using 100% GMO-free Winter Wheat, is distilled in copper pot stills, and each batch is personally approved a member of the family before release.
