Wine Maker Notes
Until recently, the most intense vodka you will ever experience could only be purchased from international duty free shops. Newly available for expanded distribution, Belvedere Intense offers the smooth, full-bodied flavors one expects from Belvedere.Belvedere Intense truly highlights the balance between elegance and taste that has always been central to all Belvedere vodkas: As distinctive as it is stylish, this is a vodka that is unmatched by anything else available.Because Intense contains less water, the finer characteristics of Belvedere Vodka are elevated and intensified. On first taste, your palate detects a deep finish with notes of caramel, dark savory spice and rich bitter chocolate. Double-filtered through pure charcoal, Belvedere Intense is naturally smooth and magnificent. It is the perfect base for cocktails, mixed drinks and infusions.
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 Zyrardów 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.
