Polish vodka production

Belvedere has been producing vodka that applies the concept of terroir – nature and territory: two key concepts that amplify the value of the raw material, the Polska Rye. The result is a process deriving from the Polish tradition, which used the malting and roasting of rye to reveal its deepest aromas. In the early days of Polish vodka production, malting the rye, then heating it in the oven, was the technique by which the very first rye distillers activated enzymes in cereals, starting the process of transforming starch into sugar before fermentation. This firing process enhanced the characteristics of the rye that would otherwise have remained hidden or buried. A forgotten production method for centuries, while beer and whiskey producers have continued to use it in their recipes.

Drinking culture in Poland

The drinking culture has a long history in Poland. According to one of the customs of old Polish hospitality, court guests were greeted with a glass of vodka. The distillate production technology was mastered at the beginning of the fifth century, when the Arabs used it as a medicine. It came to Europe during the Crusades, based on fruit. One variation is the Italian grappa, made from cake and grape seeds. In Poland, the cereal-based drink began to be produced in the fourteenth century. They called it the ‘water of life’, believing in its healing properties, and giving it the gift of prolonging life.
