Belvedere Vodka is distilled from 100% Dan´kowskie Gold Rye, which has only been successfully harvested in Poland. Belvedere Vodka is distilled four times, the optimum number for achieving its unique flavour profile - three distillations leave minor imperfections, five distillations strip away delicious flavour notes. Polmos Zyrardów uses a proprietary water purification system that relies on reverse osmosis; blended spirit and water are distilled through custom-made charcoal and mechanical filters. The ultimate difference is the skill, experience and attention to detail of the Zyrardów team. Led by veteran directors with twenty and thirty years of experience at Polmos Zyrardów each, the distillery is an exciting mix of tradition, state of the art technology, passion and innovation. First introduced to the market 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.
