On Saturday evening, The Daily and Belvedere Vodka hosted a private dinner at The Crow’s Nest in Montauk to celebrate the Hamptonites who are mixing it up Out East this summer and Belvedere’s unique Single Estate Rye vodkas.
The evening began with Belvedere’s unique Single Estate Rye vodkas served on the lawn at dusk, followed by a vodka tasting and dinner in a private dining room upstairs. Belvedere Vodka US ambassador, Brian Stewart, made a short speech explaining a little about Belvedere’s history — Did you know they had to get permission from the Polish government to use the Belvedere castle on their bottles? — and extolling the virtues of Belvedere’s two new single estate rye vodkas, Smogóry Forest and Lake Bartężek, which hail from western and northern Poland respectively and, thus, have two distinctly different flavor profiles.
Following the tasting, guests including TK Wonder, Sophie Sumner, Krystal Bick, Athena Calderone, Mariah Strongin, Cynthia Rowley, Aliza Licht, Garrett Neff, Igee Okafor, Lydia Fenet, Gretchen Maull Berger, Jenné Lombardo, Harvey Newton-Haydon, Stephanie Nass, and Lilliana Vasquez enjoyed a sumptuous three-course meal, which married the elements of earth and water central to Belvedere’s Single Estate Rye vodkas.
Naturally, each dish was paired with an appropriate Belvedere vodka cocktail, every one of which was, in a word, divine.
