Behind the Label
- The Maison
The house of Belvedere proudly uses only natural ingredients in its vodka – Polish rye and water – locally sourced in accordance with the country’s rigorous guidelines. The same rules apply to the house’s macerated vodkas, made with natural fruits and botanicals.
Vodka's First Lady
Recognised internationally as an authority on vodka production, Head of Spirit Creation and Mixology Claire Smith-Warner is known as the “First Lady of Vodka.” With her expert palate and over a decade of experience, Claire takes an innovative approach to developing new products.
Belvedere vodka is crafted at a 100-year-old distillery in the small town of Żyrardów. Dańkowskie rye, grown on the nearby Mazovian plains, combined with purified water from Belvedere’s own artesian wells, produce complex notes of white pepper, sourdough bread and almond.
A place in history
Belvedere, meaning “beautiful to see,” gets its name from Belweder Palace, the 17th-century residence of the Polish president. An illustration of this grand building appears on every bottle and reminds us that Belvedere is as much a part of Poland’s heritage as the palace itself.
