EFFEN Vodka is a high-end vodka whose name, meaning "smooth" in Dutch, reflects its quality. This original or flavored vodka boasts a light and crisp taste that comes from using premium French wheat and natural ingredients in a continuous distillation process. EFFEN Vodka is a bartender-designed drink that provides a smooth and lively base for creating cocktails. According to Wine Enthusiast, EFFEN Vodka has an initial zesty and mildly spicy aroma that highlights the cereal grain, and its taste is moderately sweet with a hint of smoke and pipe tobacco leaf. Unlike other Dutch vodkas that tend to be creamier and sweeter, EFFEN Vodka is leaner and drier.
