New this year, the Mixology Backpack is tailored to serve up the needs of the modern-day on the go mixologist. Made of a coated Italian canvas with black leather trim, the exclusive backpack offers a host of versatile and iconic elements, including a signature TUMI leather luggage tag, co-branded with the Ketel One Vodka logo, and a leather monogram patch. Two exterior, water-resistant pockets on each side securely hold liter-sized bottles of Ketel One Vodka. The main opening, in black interior lining accentuated with gunmetal hardware, fully unzips to reveal a spacious compartment. In it, expandable pockets neatly stock polished, stainless steel utensils including a shaker, 1 oz. and 2 oz. jigger and mixing spoon. Also nestled inside the main compartment, a sleek removable pouch holds the essential bar accoutrements to blend the perfect drink anywhere, ideal for the on the go traveler.  A second zippered opening is large enough for other gear, such as laptops and iPads.

"We are thrilled to continue our partnership and expand our line with TUMI to bring cocktail enthusiasts more accessories to create top-quality mixed drinks this holiday season," said Carl Nolet Jr, 11 th Generation of 322 year old Nolet Distillery. "TUMI'S understanding of today's sophisticated traveler, paired with Ketel One's deep appreciation of craft, adds up to the ultimate mobile bar that allows for mixologists to create and serve cocktails anywhere while always being responsible."

"Like the Ketel One consumer, TUMI customers are attracted to brands and products that are truly 'best in class', serving up a collection of handcrafted products and quality design," said Alan Krantzler, SVP Brand Management. "Celebrating our second season together, the TUMI Ketel One Mixology Set and Mixology Backpack offer the individual who enjoys entertaining something unique and purposeful."

Returning for a second season, the TUMI Mixology Set is a truly luxurious option for the aesthete on anyone's list. Earl Grey coated canvas with black leather trim detail richly updates this Italian-made piece, inspired by TUMI's premium trunk silhouette. The set opens to reveal a well-appointed bar for the modern traveler who covets custom-made quality and meticulous attention to detail. Upon unlatching, a collection of stainless steel utensils are positioned inside custom-fit pockets to remain perfectly poised:

  • Leather bottle holders, custom-sized to fit Ketel One
  • Two premium martini glasses with removable supports that double as coasters
  • Ice bucket, tongs and scoop
  • Zester metal bar spoon
  • Vermouth spritzer
  • Two olive picks
  • Removable beech wood cutting board with integrated recess for signature TUMI knife
  • Shaker with 1 oz. and 2 oz. jigger

About Ketel One Vodka

With ten generations of Nolet family distilling passion and expertise, the success of the KETEL ONE® brand is built on one-to-one conversations with the bartending community. Launched in the United States in the early 1980s, Carolus Nolet Sr. was inspired by original recipes and techniques of his ancestors when he created the recipe for and distinctive personality of KETEL ONE vodka.

KETEL ONE vodka is a sophisticated and crisp, wheat-based, ultra-premium blend crafted from small batches, using copper pot stills together with modern distilling techniques.  The 19 th 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 Nolet family prior to bottling. After extensive research, KETEL ONE CITROEN® flavored vodka was launched in 2000, created by infusing KETEL ONE vodka with citrus essential oil essence. Two different types of lemon from Sicily give the flavored vodka a lively, rich sweetness, whilst one variety from Spain gives a full, distinctive taste.  Lemon from Guinea, West Africa results in a more intense character, whilst two varieties of lime from the Caribbean give KETEL ONE CITROEN flavored vodka an incredible note of freshness.

KETEL ONE ORANJE® flavored vodka was launched in 2010, created by infusing KETEL ONE vodka with orange essential oil essence. The vodka is infused with the all-natural essence of a select combination of Mandarin oranges from Italy and Valencia oranges from Florida and Brazil resulting in the flavor of KETEL ONE ORANJE flavored vodka.

In 2008, the Nolet Group created a 50/50 joint venture company with Diageo, KETEL ONE Worldwide B.V., to import, sell, market and distribute KETEL ONE vodka and KETEL ONE CITROEN flavored vodka and to maximize global growth potential for the KETEL ONE brand.
