Discover why Belvedere is celebrated by discriminating enthusiasts worldwide. Belvedere`s taste profile features a subtle sweetness and smooth, clean finish that only comes from using 100% Dankowskie Gold Rye as the single-grain ingredient. Belvedere Vodka hails from the small town of Zyrard'w in the Mazovian plains west of Warsaw, Poland. Following traditions dating back over 600 years, Belvedere is handcrafted in small batches to ensure superior quality meeting only the highest of standards. Belvedere is distilled four times, the optimum number for enhancing its unique, subtle character. If a taste sampling shows even a hint of imbalance, the entire batch is destroyed. First introduced to North America in 1996, Belvedere single-handedly created the luxury vodka segment (now the fastest-growing category in distilled spirits). Seven years later, Belvedere`s high character and uncompromising integrity are recognized internationally. Consumer demand continues to increase at an accelerated pace, and worldwide recognition of the brand is at an all-time high. As Poland is widely recognized as the birthplace of vodka, it is fitting that Belvedere is named after the Belvedere Palace, formerly home to Polish royalty and presidents. Today, Belvedere Vodka offers a luxury experience to a broad international audience of vodka enthusiasts and connoisseurs.
