Last week, Claire Smith, Belvedere Vodka Head of Spirit Creation and Mixology hosted an intimate event at Melbourne’s Vue De Monde, that explored Belvedere’s Polish heritage and rich vodka making tradition. Considered one of the most respected authorities on vodka and mixology worldwide, Claire is regularly called on by international industry and consumer magazines such as The New York Times, GQ, Cosmopolitan, Wine Spectator and Drinks Business to comment on global vodka trends. We thought it was important to share with our readers the unique selection of original cocktails that Claire created for the event. Our favourite was the Belvedere Unfiltered, raisins, vermouth and orange. Simply delicious.
