The Spirit of Polish Vodka
In 1993, Belvedere Vodka made its official launch, creating a new standard in vodka. Belvedere Vodka hails from the small town of Zyrardów, in the Mazovian plains of central Poland, where it is crafted in a 100 year old distillery. Belvedere, which means "beautiful to see" is named after the Belweder Palace in Warsaw, home of the Polish President. An illustration of the palace appears on each and every bottle, reinforcing that Belvedere Vodka is both beautiful to see and taste.
Only the most dedicated and passionate dare make Polish Vodka. With the most rigorously regulated vodka laws on the planet, there are no short cuts for quality or consistency. Every step of production must occur on Polish soil with locally-sourced raw ingredients. Belvedere uses Dankowskie Rye from the Mazovian plains of Poland and water from its own proprietary wells to create this luxury vodka. It's an integral part of what makes Belvedere proud to serve your palate.
Know the Difference
At Belvedere they do not go out of the way to make overt claims about their vodkas. The brand humbly and respectfully appreciates the votes of excellence from those who know the difference. Belvedere continues to be the recipient of many remarkable achievements making us the most awarded luxury vodka. This is seen in the endless praise from the likes of the Vodka Masters, the International Spirits Challenge, TheFiftyBest.com Vodka Awards and other respected industry voices. Most recently, Belvedere Vodka was awarded Producer of the Year at the 2015 International Spirits Challenge!
Make the Difference
Belvedere is as passionate about the impact on the world as they are about vodka. Social responsibility, environmental and agricultural impact as well as responsible drinking are built into their culture. Belvedere prides itself on being recognized as a globally responsible, locally sensitive company.
Belvedere in Green
In partnership with its agricultural distilleries and the Biotechnological University of Lodz, Belvedere launched the Raw Spirit Program to promote sustainable growth of Dankowskie Rye, used in Belvedere Vodka. The initiative led to Belvedere's involvement with programs to seek out and protect the best raw materials, while working closely with authorities to ensure Polish vodka standards remain the world's highest and most exacting.
