Ketel One Botanical Peach & Orange Blossom
Ketel One // Netherlands
Ketel One Botanical hits shelves beginning May 2018. Peach & Orange Blossom is part of a trio of releases which all start with Ketel One Vodka--made with 100% non-GMO grain. A botanical recipe is added and the product is redistilled in copper pot stills. Then it is infused with "naturally-extracted essences of crisp, fragrant fruits and botanicals". No artificial flavors, added sugars, or artificial sweeteners are added. Bottled at 60 proof, a 1.5 oz serving is 73 calories.
Botanical SpiritAn up and coming spirit, this category currently has no legal definition. Usually a neutral spirit is used as the base and it is then flavored with botanicals. However, juniper is NOT used in its production, so it is NOT a type of gin. Botanical spirits are usually not aged, but there are some exceptions.
"Peach is the primary aroma here along with a slight green aromatic quality. Difficult to ascertain the orange blossom since the peach is so intense. It is somewhat one dimensional, but enjoyable nonetheless. Mix as you see fit."
