The classic flavor profile of Belvedere’s barley Vodka with a very small luxurious dab of malted barley new-make added in.

The Polmos Żyrardów Distillery was built in 1910, producing a range of Polish Vodkas and other Spirits. The Belvedere Vodka line was originally created to break in to the United States market in 1996. It was marketed as the “world’s first super-premium Vodka.” It was a huge success — not just in the US, but world-wide. So much so that virtually all production at the facility is now dedicated to creating the various versions of Belvedere Vodka. Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy (LVMH) acquired the facility and brand in 2002.

Belvedere Heritage 176 is a cross-category clear Spirit. As you may remember, “regular” Belvedere Vodka is made fro local Polish rye grain from eight farms surrounding the distillery. Well, to make Belvedere Heritage 176 they blend the regular Belvedere Vodka with a small amount of malted rye Spirit (2%) to ensure that more grain character is available in the flavor profile. It’s sort of like a combination of Vodka and a malted barley White Dog, if that makes sense.

The name “176” refers to the temperature that the malted barley mash is heated to prior to fermentation.

Smartass Corner:
Belvedere Vodka is named after the Polish Presidential Palace in Warsaw — “Belweder” — and a picture of that building appears on the bottle.

The average life of a $50 bill in circulation is 55 months before it is replaced due to wear.
Seems that Vodka is a lightweight—quite literally. This clear Spirit actually weighs less than water. One liter of water weighs 1,000 grams, while the same amount of Vodka only clocks in at 953 grams.
Vodka can be made anywhere in the world and pretty much of any ingredient that contains starch.

For a potato-based Vodka, 12kg (26.5lbs) potatoes are needed to produce a single bottle.
Unlike its boozy brethren Bourbon and Scotch, Vodka can be made anywhere in the world. But it’s Eastern Europe that gets the credit for its birth. Just don’t ask Russia and Poland to get to the bottom of it—both argue that they masterminded the Spirit first.
It looks like potato chips and flavored Vodka are two things where the producers unleash their imagination. Bubble gum, fresh cut grass, pumpkin pie, marshmallow, and coconut water hardly begin to describe the many flavors of Vodka.
You won't impress the bartender by ordering Vodka-soda, but it's a good choice if you want to avoid unecessary sugar intake and make sure you stay hydrated when consuming alcohol.
