The SXSW excitement continued when Ketel One Vodka was part of another legendary evening, this time with Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Entertainment Weekly, to celebrate Jimmy’s return to Austin and his March Cover issue of EW!
Hosted at the interactive Samsung Studio, guests entered into a two-level space with Jimmy Kimmel Live! footage on Samsung TVs and fun beats making for a lively atmosphere. Aisling Gammill’s bespoke cocktails – the same three featured at De Nolet (Ketel One’s immersive experience on Friday and Saturday night) – were served from high-end bars dressed with Ketel One bottles and special touches including fresh thyme and glowing candles. Jimmy Kimmel and Constance Zimmer both drank the National Republic of Texas Cocktail made with Ketel One Citroen Flavored Vodka.
