Food & Spirits: Belvedere announces its newest addition to their collection of flavored vodkas: Belvedere Black Raspberry.

Through their use of the artisanal process of maceration, Belvedere has created vodkas with sophisticated flavor profiles, and Belvedere Black Raspberry is a complex compliment to their past two flavors, Belvedere Orange and Citrus.

Using only real berries, fruits, and flowers in the maceration process ensures drinkers a unique and naturally distinctive experience. Belvedere uses only naturally occurring ingredients to add the flavor to their vodkas, making it the only vodka brand to do so.

It is described as having a "luscious, bull-bodied mouth-feel with bright raspberry characteristics and elements of rich, succulent blackcurrants. Aromatic rose serves to highlight the floral characteristic of the raspberry and naturally lifts and sweetens the palate."

Belvedere Black Raspberry will lend itself very well to being the main component in mixed drinks, along with being excellent served chilled, over ice or with soda.

This spring will see the launch of the ad campaign for Belvedere Black Raspberry, playfully posing their tag line, "So you're curious about maceration," with a sexy play on the word.

Because of the vodka's complex flavors and aromas, Belvedere's newest addition to their maceration collection is sure to make immediate fans of its drinkers. The time-intensive process that goes into creating the world's premium luxury vodka is time very well spent, as the brand will soon be showing the world the importance in technical experience and attention to natural ingredients.
