ABOUT BELVEDERE VODKA
First introduced to North America in 1996, Belvedere Vodka was the first to create a new standard for excellence in the vodka category and is credited with creating the luxury vodka segment. Today, Belvedere’s distinctive character and uncompromising integrity are recognized internationally by discriminating vodka enthusiasts, who appreciate its all-natural, additive-free character. Made entirely from Dankowskie Gold Rye and blended with water from its own pristine source, Belvedere Vodka’s taste profile is distinctively soft with a subtle sweetness and naturally smooth, clean finish.
In 2012, Belvedere introduced Lemon Tea to its award-winning Maceration collection (Pink Grapefruit, Citrus, Orange, Black Raspberry, Bloody Mary) Lemon Tea is the second vodka made to a drink from Belvedere and is distilled with eight exceptional ingredients including black & green teas, ginger, chamomile, lemongrass, honey and lemon; resulting in a refreshing and vibrant vodka. A simple addition of iced tea or lemonade also turns a Belvedere Lemon Tea into a delectable cocktail for poolside lounging or beach party.
Belvedere Unfiltered created from 100% rare Dankowskie Diamond Rye completes the super premium vodka collection. The rye possesses such a naturally creamy, rich flavour that after being distilled four times, the vodka is left UNFLITERED in order to preserve its character and taste.
