Belvedere Heritage 176
The brand behind it all
Up until the 1890s, Polish rye vodka-makers for centuries had relied on the technique of malting rye to produce vodka of distinct flavour. Beginning in the early 1900s, as distillation scaled and modernised, and the vodka category expanded, technology evolved and the old malting traditions sadly faded out, allowing vodka to become more associated with neutrality.
Belvedere has long challenged neutrality within vodka and believes that terroir has a significant effect on the taste of rye. Heritage 176 showcases the taste of rye, by reviving the centuries-old malting rye technique, unlocking rich depth, flavour and aroma that would otherwise remain hidden in the rye.
Created using only Polska rye, pure water and a distillation process by fire, Belvedere contains zero additives or added sugars, is certified kosher and is produced in one of the world’s longest operating Polish distilleries that has been making vodka since 1910. Belvedere’s Master Rye Distillers draw from a 600-year Polish vodka-making history to artfully craft Polska rye into dynamic vodkas of distinct taste and character. All vodkas are gluten-free.
The brand has some ambitious green goals for the coming years including a biomass capture facility that produces 100% renewable energy, with an eye on becoming entirely carbon neutral by 2025. As a distillery, they work closely with co-operatives of Polish Farmers and tradespeople to create their products.
