There are many ways to flavor a vodka, this particular process is called infusion.
Our unique maceration process is a combination of infusion, distillation and blending, to infuse our vodka we soak our ingredients in Belvedere for up to four weeks. This helps the vodka to gently extract the flavors - but only to the point where flavor is extracted and oxidization is minimized. Although the color from the ingredients sometimes come along for the ride, leaving the ingredients to soak for too long can cause them to oxidize - i.e. turn yellow/brown. Afterwards, we take the infused vodka and distill it using a small pot still, leaving us with bright and freshly flavored distillates with all the color removed.
The maceration process keeps the flavors in Belvedere vodka bright, expressive and stable, so they won’t deteriorate over time like many infusions.
