How do you describe the taste of vodka? The neutral distilled spirit is distinguished by a lack of a distinctive flavor or aroma. Some even mistakenly claim that some countries like the US require vodka by law to be “tasteless, odorless, and colorless.” So if vodka is just ethanol and water, what separates one brand of vodka from another?

Born of over 600 years of Polish Vodka making tradition, Belvedere Vodka is known for using only three perfect ingredients: Rye, Water and Character

As it turns out, what goes on during the distillation and dilution process does make a difference. Low-quality vodka contains a higher level of impurities, which can affect how we think it tastes because it’s less smooth. Manufacturers sometimes use additives like sugar, glycerin, and citric acid to cover up the impurities.

Backed by 600 years of Polish vodka making tradition, Belvedere Vodka is known for using just three ingredients: rye, water, and character. Made entirely from Polish Dankowskie Gold Rye and diluted with purified artesian water from its own wells, the vodka is distilled four times to remove impurities, and it’s free from additives like sugar and glycerin.
