The world’s original luxury vodka has expressed its edgy personality by taking risks in the pursuit of creativity and excellence. Belvedere Pink Grapefruit is the refreshing and vibrant result.
Belvedere Pink Grapefruit is not just flavoured with grapefruits; Spanish spring lemons and fresh ginger also make up its unique taste. Like other flavours in the Belvedere range, the base spirit is quadruple distilled in the Zyrardow Polmos distillery just outside Warsaw from Dankowskie Zlote rye. The rye distillate is then sent by tanker from Zyrardow to the Distillerie des Terres Rouges in France’s Limousin region. Here the whole pink grapefruits, Spanish lemons and fresh ginger are separately macerated and then redistilled. These are then blended to make a concentrated infusion before being sent back to Zyrardow to be blended with more Dankowskie Zlote rye base spirit.
By steeping these fresh ingredients directly into this luxurious spirit, Belvedere ensures that these vibrant flavors are delicately and deliciously drawn out. The resulting flavoured spirit is hydrated back to bottling strength with the distillery’s own purified artesian well water.
Nose: A rush of bright and refreshing sweet citrus lift, with notes of ripe grapefruit flesh, spicy ginger, and a hint of vanilla.
Palate: Soft, sweet and rich with a velvety texture and vivid pink grapefruit tartness tempered by hints of warming ginger and lemon peel. Medium bodied with a good balance of acidity and spice.
Finish: Sustained notes of fresh citrus with a persistent sweet spice warmth and soft cream and vanilla back palate.
