Ketel One vodka, arthritis inspired by 10 generations of distilling expertise, generic ed has been named both an Official Vodka and Official Licensee of The PGA of America.
The partnership will be on display this week at the 94th PGA Championship at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island (S.C.) Resort, where Ketel Onevodka and Ketel One Citroen and Oranje flavored vodkas will be featured at the Main Concession Areas and PGA Hospitality chalets.
To celebrate, the Ketel One team has created a new signature drink for PGA Championship Week, “The Wanamaker Tee Time featuring Ketel One Citroen flavored vodka,” which will be available for golf fans to toast the greatest names in golf, as they descend upon Kiawah Island for “The Season’s Final Major…Glory’s Last Shot.” The Ketel One team will also craft a new premium signature drink to debut at the Ryder Cup at Medinah (Ill.)

Ketel One vodka is a sophisticated and crisp, wheat-based, super-premium blend crafted from small batches, using copper pot stills together with modern distilling techniques. The 19th century coal-fired pot still, Pot Still Number 1, otherwise known as “Distilleerketel # 1,” is one of the pot stills used in the production process and is the inspiration for the name of this Dutch vodka. Each final production of Ketel One vodka is approved by a member of the founding Nolet family prior to bottling.
“Ketel One vodka is proud to partner with The PGA of America, and we look forward to our participation in world class events like the 2012 PGA Championship and Ryder Cup,” said Ed Bello, Brand Marketing Director, Ketel One vodka. “This exciting partnership further reinforces our longstanding commitment to golf.”
