Ketel One Citron: A Refreshing Citrus Sensation

Introduction

Elevate your next cocktail with Ketel One Citron, a flavoured vodka bursting with zesty lemon character. This small-batch Dutch spirit, crafted by the Nolet family for over 300 years, offers a smooth and sophisticated twist on the classic vodka.

Aromatic Journey

Pour yourself a chilled glass of Ketel One Citron and embark on an aromatic adventure. The first wave that greets your nose is a burst of bright, citrusy lemon zest. This isn't a sharp, artificial aroma; instead, it evokes the freshness of freshly cut lemons, sunshine on lemon groves, and a hint of zesty lemon meringue pie. Look beyond the initial citrus burst and you might detect subtle floral notes and a touch of honeyed sweetness, hinting at the smooth taste to come.

Tasting Experience

The palate is where Ketel One Citron truly shines. The initial sip delivers a clean and refreshing wave of lemon, with a delightful balance between sweet and tart. The citrus flavour isn't overpowering; it's more akin to biting into a ripe, juicy lemon segment. The Nolet family's signature smooth vodka base provides a luxurious mouthfeel, allowing the citrus notes to dance on the tongue without any harsh bite. As the flavours develop, a touch of honeyed sweetness emerges, complementing the zesty lemon and creating a well-rounded taste profile. The finish is clean and lingers pleasantly, leaving behind a delightful echo of lemon and a hint of creamy sweetness.

Crafted with Care

The quality of Ketel One Citron is evident in every sip. Unlike some flavoured vodkas that rely on artificial additives, Ketel One Citron uses real lemon and lime essences for its citrus punch. This dedication to natural ingredients ensures a pure and authentic flavour experience.  The vodka base itself is crafted using traditional copper pot distillation in small batches. This meticulous process removes impurities, resulting in an exceptionally smooth spirit that perfectly complements the zesty citrus notes.

Ketel One Citron's versatility makes it a perfect ingredient for a wide range of cocktails. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:
