The Classic

Ketel One Vodka 80

Ketel One 80 proof is the choice selection from each batch of vodka. The first 100 gallons and the last 100 gallons of this batch are discarded, leaving only the most pristine selection for a smoother experience. Enjoy the fresh, slightly citrus and honey-flavored vodka that boasts a crisp finish.

With a Twist

Ketel One Citroen

All the superior distillation methods of classic Ketel One are infused with both lemon and lime essence for a citrus twist. A sweeter lemon scent is apparent on the nose, followed by more pronounced notes of lemon and  honey sweetness. A long, silky rich lemon finish leaves you both refreshed and satisfied.
