October welcomes National Vodka Day, and we’re raising a glass to celebrate! Here at Ketel One, every day is Vodka Day so what better way to enjoy than with a delicious cocktail?
Vodka accounts for almost 20-25% of spirits sold in North America, and even outpaced bourbon as America’s favourite spirit back in the 1970s. Although the full origin and history of National Vodka Day may be unknown, we are incredibly proud of our heritage which spans across 300 years of distilling experience.
With our oldest, coal-fired copper pot, Distilleerketel #1, still in use today, we are committed to creating a vodka both crisp to taste and soft on finish – a vodka which is known and loved amongst bartenders, families and friends around the world.
Whether you prefer your vodka straight or mixed, shaken or stirred, we’ll be making a toast to National Vodka Day with one of our classic cocktails – Vodka Sour.
