Tumi and Ketel One® Vodka Debut the Tumi Mixology Set

NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, travel and cocktail enthusiasts across the world will mix up the ultimate entertaining experience- one part Tumi, one part Ketel One Vodka. The two brands are teaming up to introduce a limited edition Tumi Mixology Set that will honor the virtue of craftsmanship shared by both brands. This exclusive piece will be introduced in late November 2012 at select Tumi stores and online at Tumi.com.

Celebrating the artisanal and crafted philosophy prominent in Tumi's luggage and Ketel One's vodka alike, each Mixology Set was meticulously handmade in Italy from the finest Italian leather, nickel hardware and Poplar wood.

Infused with the substance and style of both Tumi and Ketel One, the set's exterior has sleek features including Tumi's signature black ballistic nylon with leather trim, a luggage tag and a monogram patch. Travelers can unlatch the nickel hardware lock to reveal a full mixology experience that will entice any palette.

The Tumi Mixology Set carries all the essential tools to craft high-quality cocktails resting inside a stain-resistant, coated fabric interior. The set features utensils including:

  • Leather square bottle holders laser etched with Tumi logo custom-sized to perfectly fit the newly designed Ketel One bottles
  • Leather holders and coasters, magnetically held into place with laser etched Ketel One logo
  • Two premium martini glasses supported by slide in-and-out nickel plated c-channels, doubling as a coaster
  • Ice bucket and ice scoop with laser etched Tumi logo
  • Ice tongs
  • Zester with laser etched Tumi logo
  • Metal barspoon
  • Vermouth spritzer
  • Two olive picks with laser etched Tumi logo
  • Removable cutting board made from beech wood, with integrated recess for laser etched Tumi logo knife, sits into a hand-formed leather recess
  • Shaker with Tumi's iconic signature laser etched pattern
  • One-ounce and two-ounce jiggers to responsibly craft high-quality cocktails

"We are excited to partner with Tumi and unveil this one-of-a-kind Mixology Set," said Ed Bello, Brand Director of Ketel One Vodka. "It is a true honor to work with an iconic brand that shares the virtue of craftsmanship so prominent throughout the history of Ketel One Vodka. We know that enthusiasts everywhere will enjoy the set to create and safely enjoy amazing cocktails this holiday season."

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 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.

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.

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.
