Effen Vodka, Imported from Holland

By Matt Goldstein

Effen Vodka is made from premium wheat from Northern Holland.  Through a process of continuous rectification, Effen claims that their vodka is distilled “hundreds of times.”  Most vodkas are distilled anywhere between 1-5 times.  Effen also distills their vodka at lower temperatures compared to other vodkas.  Filtered five times by using a “bottom-up” filtration process, Effen also uses pure spring water which is filtered through reverse osmosis.    

Effen Vodka Tasting Notes:

We tasted Effen vodka in 5 separate in and out martinis.  Thin, smooth, excellent.  Beautiful vodka grains, flavorful after a few sips, dry, medicinal mouth feel, perfect martini flavor.  Perhaps a bit thin on the first sip, but gets better sip after sip.  Grainy, oily, gets crisper the more you sip.  Very good all around vodka.

    I* want to say about $28.00 or so. I will try to concentrate on adding price ranges to all of the products we review.
