Packaged in a black bottle with pink highlights to “embody the spirits of the night”, Belvedere IX is flavoured with acai, almond, black cherry, cinnamon, eucalyptus, ginger, jasmine and sweet almond.
The nine ingredients are individually distilled before being blended with regular Belvedere vodka to create a taste described by the maker as “bold and intricate with uplifting sweet spice followed by invigorating ginger warmth… [and] a characteristic Belvedere flourish of vanilla and white pepper”.
Belvedere IX is currently available in a number of premium on-premise venues across the US. It will not be released in Australia until the second half of the year.
