Belvedere Smogóry Forest and Lake Bartężek


Belvedere has released two expressions as part of a new terroir-focused range, called Belvedere Single Estate Rye Series. The range explores the idea of terroir in vodka, claiming that climate variation affects the taste produced from the Polish dankowskie diamond rye used in each expression.

Smogóry Forest is made entirely from dankowskie diamond rye grown at a single small estate in western Poland. Lake Bartężek is crafted from dankowskie diamond rye grown at a single farm in northern Poland’s Mazury lake district, a region known for its glacial lakes, weather shaped by Baltic winds and long, snowy winters. The rye in this region spends over 80 winter days buried in snow.
