Ketel One vodka are recommending that whilst you’re at the Diageo Reserve Bar you might like to try a super smooth, super premium Ketel One vodka Bloody Mary which will be being served from 11am-9pm everyday during London Cocktail Week.

Apparently lots of people are under the misapprehension that a Bloody Mary doesn’t require top quality vodka but Ketel One say that it’s important to really get the best ingredients you can find. They’re proud of their vodka and say ‘Ketel One is an exceptionally crafted vodka. The foundation of this discerning taste is the small batch, traditional pot still distillation, in a recipe inspired by 10 generations of the Nolet family’s spirits distilling expertise. There’s also a lemon version – Ketel One Citroen, which is created by infusing Ketel One vodka with natural citrus essence.’
