Belvedere Smogóry Forest Vodka
From the Maker:
Smogóry Forest is crafted with rare Diamond Dankowskie rye from a single estate located in Smogóry, a tiny village in rural Western Poland surrounded by the region’s vast, pristine forests. This exceptionally bold, robust and savory vodka captures the essence of its unspoiled region, recalling the dense hardwood forests dominating the terroir.
The Single Estate Rye Series celebrates Belvedere’s craftsmanship and expertise in vodka distilling, as well as our ability to produce vodkas of complex character. When tasted side by side, the two vodkas deliver demonstrably different taste profiles, illustrating the variation of terroir on the same Dankowskie Diamond rye grown in each unique location.
About the Maker:
Belvedere vodka is a reflection of their heritage: over 600 years of Polish vodka-making tradition has led to the creation of Belvedere Vodka.
Belvedere respects over 600 years of Polish vodka history, tradition and standards of vodka production, which means the use of traditional ingredients, no additives and only natural flavor profiles. This approach was codified in 2013 with the introduction of a Geographical Appellation, protecting traditional Polish vodka making techniques. Poland is the first and only Geographical Appellation for vodka and as such is a guarantee of authenticity, heritage and quality.
The distillery in Zyradow was established in 1910 and is the longest continuously operating distillery in Poland.
