Belvedere Black rasberry only usies the finest hand-harvested, plump and flavourful raspberries from the Podlasie area of northeast Poland. The berries are then blended with rich French blackcurrants and French rose water, creating the most delicious and entirely natural perfect Belvedere Black Raspberry flavour. Unlike other flavoured vodkas, Belvedere uses only natural fruit and flowers in creating flavours, macerating the fruit in Belvedere's luxury vodka for a minimum of one month to create the most premium flavour experience in the marketplace.
The result is R16 - a seductive blend of luscious blackcurrants and rich raspberries combined wih delicate rose petal essence.
Background: Belvedere Vodka is distilled from 100% Dankowskie Gold Rye, which has only been successfully harvested in Poland. Belvedere Vodka is distilled four times, the optimum number for achieving its unique flavor profile - three distillations leave minor imperfections, five distillations strip away delicious flavor notes.
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.
