The kettle you linked to has has two drilled holes into which are fitted weld-less bulkheads. The bottom one has a ball valve attached to it, allowing you to empty the kettle from there (instead of picking up the whole thing and pouring, or siphoning the liquid out). The top is plugged but would usually hold a thermometer. The benefits of add-ons depend ...


Reapply Teflon tape. As counterintuitive as it sounds, check to make sure the bulkhead isn't overtightened; it can cause gaskets to leak.


I usually use teflon tape to keep these from leaking. Another possibility is the gasket (sometimes a silicone o-ring), which may not be sitting flush against the kettle. This may need changing.
