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. The result: a statement piece that transports as a mobile bar. The case is equal parts function and design resulting in an item of distinction.

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."

Inspired by the crafted and historic distillation process of Ketel One, the new Tumi Mixology Set makes the perfect gift for the recipient who has everything and can be used to responsibly create festive drinks, like the Tumi Tastemaker, featured below, all season long.

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.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
