Accolades from the International Spirits Challenge for the exceptional quality of our products is a phenominal achievement. We pride ourselves on the distinct character and taste of each of our vodkas and we are very pleased that the judges, all global connoisseurs, have commended Belvedere Vodka time and time again.
Claire Smith-Warner Head of Spirit Creation Belvedere Vodka

Chateau du Tariquet was awarded Individual Distillery of the Year 2014. We are very honoured to receive this award as it is a true recognition of our family's work for the last five generations. Our aunt Maïté and our father Yves have given us passion for the vine, the distillation and the ageing of Bas-Armagnacs. We and the whole team at the estate are very proud that Château du Tariquet won such a fantastic trophy.
