03. Belvedere exclusive Single Estate Rye series
With the two latest creations of the exclusive Single Estate Rye series – Smogóry Forest and Lake Bartężek – Belvedere created two different vodkas that are made from the same type of rye and in the same process, but each develop a unique flavour.
Smogóry Forest comes from the west of Poland, from the Lubusz Voivodeship. With every sip, this first-class vodka awakens memories of the scent of endless deciduous forests. The continental climate with mild winters and fertile soils makes for a rye that brings out notes of salty caramel, a hint of honey combined with white pepper and a salty-sweet finish.
Lake Bartężek has the signature of the North. The Dankowskie Diamond rye for this exquisite vodka is grown in the Masurian Lake District. The climate in this region is characterised by strong winds from the Baltic Sea and long winters. Named after a lake that is directly adjacent to the rye fields on the farm, Belvedere Lake Bartężek tastes full-bodied, well-balanced and silky with notes of black pepper, roasted nuts and cream.
In Switzerland, the Belvedere Single Estate Rye series is available at Globus.
04. Moët & Chandon “Specially Yours”
For gifts with a personal message to your loved ones, Moët & Chandon offers “Specially Yours”. You can choose one of six adjectives for the limited gift box containing Moët Impérial Brut. The gift box is ideal for conveying a personal message in the most elegant way.
