Belvedere Bloody Mary Vodka with Cocktail Recipes

Every once in a while, you discover a new spirit that makes a lasting impression. Belvedere Bloody Mary is a flavoured vodka that was launched early in 2012.

Made by a proprietary and artisanal method of maceration, Belvedere use real fruit, herbs and spices to create a naturally-flavoured vodka from seven ingredients: black pepper, horseradish, bell pepper, chilli pepper, vinegar distillate, tomato and lemon.

We’ve tasted it straight up, on ice, in cocktails at the Women in Hospitality Brunch and in a Kumato Bloody Mary. On the nose, it has hints of horseradish, celery and predominantly black pepper. It is fresh on the palate with notes of chilli, pepper, tomato and horseradish with a lingering warmth on the finish. This is a vodka that stands on its own as much as it does in Bloody Mary cocktails.
