The Belvedere Vodka is a Polish Rye vodka launched in the United States of America in 1996, distributed and produced by LVMH. The illustration shown on its bottles is the illustration of the presidential palace of Poland in Warsaw called Belweder. Belvedere Vodka is produced in Żyrardów, Poland, and is marketed as a ‘luxury’ liquor and the world’s first super-premium vodka.
Vodka is a clear and alcoholic drink made from basically ethanol and water. How pure the ethanol is and the quality of the water used is principally the factors that determine the mouthfeel and flavour of the vodka. The word ‘vodka’ is gotten from the Slavic word ‘voda’, which means “water”. With the addition of the letter “k”, the word ‘vodka’ can be translated as “little water”.
According to the Belvedere Brand, the Belvedere Vodka is built on a simple philosophy and a three-part story.
Three-part story: It is made with rich, complex Polska rye. Purified water, drawn from their own artesian well is used, and the fine art of quadruple distillation by fire for that taste of perfection is employed.
A simple philosophy: Made With Nature. Crafted by Master Rye Distillers, the unique taste and character of our spirit are a celebration of terroir, technique, and ingredients.
Belvedere has partnered with several celebrities including John Legend, Chelsea Handler, and Usher since its introduction into the American market. Belvedere Vodka was chosen as the official vodka brand of Spectre – a James Bond film, in 2015.
