In The Best Of Spirits

 

Let these cocktails shake, spin and surprise you, whatever the occasion

 

Whether it’s water sourced from artesian wells or centuries’ worth of craftsmanship, vodka is the very essence of its raw ingredients – no other spirit is more immediate.

 

But what does it take to get from the farmer’s field to the barman’s fist?

 

As they say at Belvedere, the world’s leading Polish premium vodka, integrity, zero additives and three essential steps: rye, water and character.

 

Whether it’s on the rocks, sweetly bitter with fruit, lime or lemon, add a dash of flavour to kick up a silky storm this weekend with our top-five choice list.

 

  1. Belvedere on the Rocks

Belvedere is the world’s original  premium vodka. Think about that. The people at Belvedere do, every day. From the use of signature Dankowskie ryes and their very own artesian water and expert distillation process to the iconic bottle design, a symbol of luxury and craftsmanship recognized all over the world, the ingredients are simple: rye and water. But they become exceptional with Belvedere.

  1. The Martini

Shaken or stirred, the cocktail continues to captivate the world. Simple yet surprisingly inaccessible, to make it just right requires patience and exquisite vodka. Martinis are the only American invention as pure as the English sonnet. Whether it’s a splash of bitters or a twist of Amalfi lemon try it with a bit of Belvedere Vodka
