In Stores Now: Belvedere Wild Berry

belevedre-vodka-760x962Belvedere Vodka, the world’s original luxury vodka, introduces the newest flavor to their award-winning portfolio: Wild Berry. Available in stores now Belvedere Wild Berry is inspired by the summer berry harvests in Poland and North America and will refresh your palate while providing an unmatched taste experience. With its perfect combination of Polish strawberries and American blueberries, Belvedere Wild Berry delivers an exquisite blend of rich, juicy vodka.

Bursting with bright and zesty character, wild Polish strawberries are smaller, dark red in appearance and more intensely flavored than conventional grocery’s berries. Aromatic North American blueberries have a sweet, delicate, almost floral flavor, which brings depth and complexity to the vodka.

“Belvedere Wild Berry exemplifies our commitment to crafting 100% naturally and sugar free flavored vodkas. Its fresh and delectable ingredients deliver an innovative twist on Belvedere Vodka,” says Charles Gibb, President of Belvedere Vodka.

Widely recognized as the leader in innovation and for its unique maceration process, Belvedere’s newest flavor is no exception. This time-intensive process of extracting fragrant oils from the finest natural fruits, by immersing them in an alcohol bath of Belvedere Vodka spirit, delivers an aromatic and authentic blend that captures the essence of the berries. Belvedere’s distinctive approach ensures its vodka is flavored with real fruit, with no added sugar or additives, resulting in uncompromised standards and exceptional character.

When Belvedere vodka meets berries, the result is fresh, wild and unexpected. Just add a splash of lemonade and some sunshine for a colorful, exciting and flamboyant drinking experience. Whether you’re at a chic rooftop bar or at the beach of the hottest travel destination, Belvedere Wild Berry cocktails will give your summer everything you need to soak up the sun whilst still cooling you down.
