At Belvedere Heritage 176, Belvedere's Master Rye Distillers use fire before distilling the rye, further demonstrating rye's potential to create a nuanced flavor. Belvedere Heritage 176 is simply the taste of vodka's past.
Belvedere questions this neutrality; the house believes that rye, the heart of our vodkas, provides both distinctive flavor and plenty of character. To further demonstrate this, Belvedere has revived the traditional malting technique to elicit the rich depth, flavors and complexity from the rye that would otherwise remain hidden. Belvedere Heritage 176 is rich and full-bodied, with notes of honey, walnut and allspice. The vodka is plain at its best or with ice and a lemon twist, a serve called "The Heritage Rocks".
