Belle™ Premium American Vodka Announces 2018 Made in Virginia Award

Belle™ Premium American Vodka is the proud recipient of an award from the 7th Annual 2018 Made in Virginia Awards! Belle was chosen out of hundreds of submissions to become one of the 22 winners of this exciting award, hand-selected by the editors of Virginia Living. Belle is recognized as a growing regional vodka distilled and bottled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. In a sea of premium domestic and imported vodkas, Belle offers a smooth finish with beautiful packaging, rivaling all top-shelf brands; sans the top-shelf price. What’s more, Belle’s ‘spirit’ goes beyond simply being a premium vodka. Belle’s enthusiastic ‘spirit’ extends to actively recognizing the “Modern Belle” in pursuing her dreams, while pushing the limits and breaking down barriers along the way, with the #BelleRisin’ and #BadAssBelle campaigns.

The Belle Vodka team is honored to receive the 2018 Made in Virginia Award. Specifically, the award celebrates the entrepreneurship of founder, Townsend “Towny” Lunsford, and his entire team. “As a native Virginian, nothing pleases me more than having Belle recognized for this award from Virginia Living,” Towny exclaims. “It’s fantastic and I offer my sincere thanks to them.  It has taken a tremendous amount of work, sweat, and grind to get to this point…with a long way to go. But that is what it takes to succeed. Nothing is free.” The award also highlights their innovation in creating a reasonably priced American vodka offering top-shelf quality, exquisite taste, gorgeous packaging, and distillation in the Commonwealth of Virginia. BelleRisin’, y’all!
