About Effen VodkaEffen means 'smooth, even, balanced' in Dutch. The Hooghoudt family distillery produces it in Groningen, the largest city in the north of The Netherlands. The team set out to create the perfect premium 'base spirit' from the perspective of a barman. Ensuring that the bottle's functionality, feel, and design is just as exquisite as the tase.
You can attribute the latter to the Effen team's collaboration and elaboration on Hooghoudt's 120-year old neutral grain spirit recipe. It's now made from 100% Dutch wheat and what is said to be the purest water in all of Holland.
Effen's founders also adopted the specific distillation process perfected by the self-proclaimed 'audacious' Hooghoudt family over 4 generations of producing top-quality genever, vodka, and beerenburg. The 'continuous and chill-distillation process along with the bottom-up carbon filtration ensures an extraordinarily smooth taste.' Since it was created to fit the restaurant/bar/club environment, the Effen Original sports a super-minimalistic label and a polymer (attached by hand) sleeve for a gentler pouring experience. Not only that but the crispy-clear, watery taste that serves a supreme cocktail base.
Historians are not clear on the exact origin of vodka since different sources link its beginning to both Russia and Poland. But one thing is clear: this somewhat simple spirit, first used as a medicinal concoction, has become one of the most versatile drinks in the world.
It can be distilled from any type of grains, potatoes, or even grapes worldwide. Due to its simplicity, this unaged spirit's main flavor factor is the quality of water and the ingredients used in the distillation process.
Primarily used in cocktails, vodka can also stand its ground when enjoyed neat.
