POLSKA RYE

A complex grain with ancient roots

Belvedere’s Polska rye is a special heritage grain, one of the fine grains to remain unchanged since ancient times. Known for its tenacious ability to withstand aggressive temperatures and challenging soil, our rye is sourced from just eight local agricultural partners for 100% traceability.   

Unlike more neutral ingredients, such as wheat or corn, rye imparts distinct taste and character. Neutrality used to be associated with quality in vodka, but Belvedere has always championed the signature depth and complexity that comes from rye. 

PURIFIED WATER

Pristine water sets a flawless stage

Our water is drawn from a natural artesian well on the grounds of the Belvedere distillery. Filtered and purified, it is blended with Polska rye to provide a flawless backdrop that allows the grain’s complex flavors to shine through.

DISTILLED BY FIRE

A time-honored process

Distillation is both a science and a fine art. Informed by centuries of vodka-making tradition, our Master Rye Distillers harness the energy of fire to quadruple distill the spirit. This process draws out the character, depth and dimension of Polska rye, expertly delivering the nuanced flavors and velvet texture of Belvedere Vodka. 

Made in Poland

Belvedere, the first super-premium vodka, represents 600 years of Polish vodka-making tradition. Our distillery is one of the world’s longest continuously operating facilities, making vodka since 1910. 

Small and intimate, the distillery delivers Belvedere’s signature consistent quality and has been recognized by the European Commission for its aggressive sustainability agenda, having reduced CO2 emissions by 42% since 2012. 

Belvedere’s production is regulated by the Polska Vodka legal regulation, one of the strictest in the world. As the appellation dictates, all production must take place on Polish soil, the spirit must be made of either grain or potato, and nothing else can be added.
