Our father and our father’s, father and our father’s, father’s, father (I’m sure you’ve got the picture?) have played a monumental part in the Nolet Distillery and the distilling techniques that are used to create the vodka you all know and love today. Father’s Day gives us the perfect excuse to celebrate this.
Father’s Day was created in the USA in the early 20th century to compliment Mother’s Day, however the creation wasn’t as simple as one would imagine. Many failed attempts at establishing Father’s Day took place within the 19th century but fell through as it was not met with the same enthusiasm as Mother’s Day. Finally in 1910 the first Father’s Day celebration was held in Washington (USA) and the rest is history.
A traditional Father’s Day in our household is a day of celebration, a day to look back on each of our 10 generations and celebrate everyone’s remarkable work. The family comes together to spend the day and enjoy each other’s company. Once we have put the children to bed my brother, father and I like to sit down and depending on who’s making them we enjoy a Ketel One Citroen on the rocks or one of our favourite Ketel One cocktails… The Tomatini.
