We’re celebrating Arnold Palmer’s birthday this Sunday, September 10. To honor the life and legacy of their dear friend, legendary golfer, Arnold Palmer, the Nolet family, creators of Ketel One Vodka, designed this commemorative bottle as an ode to Mr. Palmer’s extraordinary achievements on and off the course.
Anyone who crossed Arnold Palmer’s path was fortunate to meet him – and the Nolet family felt very fortunate indeed. Rooted in Mr. Palmer’s winning tradition and honoring his unparalleled legacy, the Nolet family was inspired to create this limited edition as a “Thank You” to Arnold Palmer for his impact on the world and the game many love so much.
The Arnold Palmer Collector’s Edition bottle reads, “Dear Mr. Palmer, This one’s for you.” The nostalgic black and white vignette of Mr. Palmer on the course is accented with his iconic signature and an open golf umbrella in red, yellow, white and green—his company logo since 1961.
To the Nolets, golf champion and Presidential Medal of Freedom Award winner Arnold Palmer was a mentor and a friend; he was simply “Arnie.” Dedicated to his family and community, Mr. Palmer spent his life giving back to the game and those in need. A master of his craft, he earned 62 PGA Tour victories. At the end of play, Mr. Palmer celebrated with a Ketel One on the rocks with a slice of lemon; it was his signature “19th hole.”
What better way to celebrate Palmer’s legacy, than by surprising your golf-loving friends with the Arnold Palmer Collector’s Edition bottle by Ketel One Vodka. The limited-time commemorative bottle is available at Reserve Bar online, or local retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $24.99 (750ml) and $31.99 (1L).
