In 2008, Belvedere Vodka introduced the first of the company’s new line of vodkas with their Intense 100 Proof Vodka. Belvedere’s Intense 100 Proof Vodka has the consistency of a cognac with rich notes of chocolate, savory spices, and caramel and comes in a black bottle with silver trees that put a fitting look to the class that this drink symbolizes.
