Ketel One Vodka Launches “A Gentleman’s Call”: Nationwide Search to Find One Game-Changing Idea Worth $100,000

A Gentleman’s Call is a nationwide search to invest $100,000 behind one original idea that champions the lifestyle of the modern gentleman.
Ketel One is looking for substance and style within an idea, inspiration or endeavor that will raise society’s behavioral/activist bar.

You can get involved at www.AGentlemansCall.com, where five projects best exemplifying a higher standard of thinking and living will be selected. The Grand Prize Winner will be chosen by consumers across the country.

Ketel One will then invest $100,000 to turn the winner’s idea into a reality.

“The idea of a gentleman is one of awareness, confidence and compassion. Helping to support an initiative that is based on those ideals is an honor and I look forward to seeing the evolution of this quest reach its full potential.”
– Ian Somerhalder, Actor and Philanthropist

To lead this nationwide call-to-action, Ketel One has enlisted the mentorship of three men that embody the essence of a modern gentleman:


actor and philanthropist Ian Somerhalder,


Co-Founder and CEO of the Movember Foundation, Adam Garone and


celebrated actor Carlos Ponce.
These cultural counselors will be defining the values of the ultimate gentleman’s competition through their day-to-day lives.

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, 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 Nolet family prior to bottling. 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.
