Smogory Forest and Lake Bartezek are two vodkas named after vastly different environments made exclusively from Dankowskie Diamond rye, yet each has its own unique expression due to the terroir which it was made. The influence of the distinct soil, topography and climate is beautifully expressed in each bottle, illustrating the extraordinary quality and character in vodka. When sampled side by side, the two vodkas deliver two completely different taste profiles.
Smogóry Forest is bold and savory. Crafted from rye cultivated in western Poland in a pastoral region known for its vast forests, short, continental weather fronts, mild winters and fertile soil; this lush, forested terroir is reflected in each bottle with notes of salted caramel, a touch of honey and white pepper.
Lake Bartężek is delicate and crisp. Crafted from rye cultivated in northern Poland’s lake district, a region renowned for its crystal-clear glacial lakes, long and snowy winters are reflected each bottle with notes of black pepper, toasted nuts and cream. In fact, the rye in this region spends over 80 winter days buried in snow, conditions that add to its character and greatly impact the liquid’s flavor profile.
Belvedere Smogóry Forest and Lake Bartężek should be enjoyed neat or on the rocks to truly experience the exquisite taste of each.
