The First Super Premium Vodka, Belvedere, Expands its New Collection of Single Estate Rye Vodkas in Time for Summer Sipping
Belvedere Vodka, the first super-premium vodka, has expanded distribution for Single Estate Rye Vodkas, a collection featuring two distinct tasting vodkas created to showcase the unique character of terroir. As consumers seek out more high quality, sustainable and natural cocktails, spirits drinkers will love the latest addition to the prestigious liquid’s impressive portfolio.
Smogory Forest and Lake Bartezek are two vodkas named after vastly different environments made exclusively from Dankowskie Diamond rye, yet each has its own unique expression due to the terroir which it was made. The influence of the distinct soil, topography and climate is beautifully expressed in each bottle, illustrating the extraordinary quality and character in vodka. When sampled side by side, the two vodkas deliver two completely different taste profiles.
Belvedere Smogóry Forest and Lake Bartężek should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks to truly experience the exquisite taste of each. If enjoyed in a cocktail, please see below for a recipe created for each vodka.
Smogóry Forest is bold and savory. Crafted from rye cultivated in western Poland in a pastoral region known for its vast forests, short, continental weather fronts, mild winters and fertile soil; this lush, forested terroir is reflected in each bottle with notes of salted caramel, a touch of honey and white pepper.

Lake Bartężek is delicate and crisp. Crafted from rye cultivated in northern Poland’s lake district, a region renowned for its crystal-clear glacial lakes, long and snowy winters are reflected each bottle with notes of black pepper, toasted nuts and cream. In fact, the rye in this region spends over 80 winter days buried in snow, conditions that add to its character and greatly impact the liquid’s flavor profile.

“The Single Estate Rye Series is truly an exploration of the idea of taste in vodka. To say vodka is tasteless is simply untrue. The effects of soil, climate and geography on taste bring forth a new terroir concept for vodka. The result are two superior, unique expressions we know consumers will love.” says Carlos Zepeda, Vice President, Belvedere Vodka at Moët Hennessy USA.
Starting this month, in addition to being sold through CLOS19, Belvedere Vodka’s Single Estate Rye Vodkas will also be available for a suggested retail price of $37.99 each (750ml), at select retailers nationwide.
