    10 Effen Cucumber Vodka
    83
    Sweet
    This is a cucumber infusion of Effen’s classic wheat based vodka. The spirit runs through a column still thus achieving great purity and the temperature during the process is kept very low in order to avoid imparting any burnt flavors to the grain. Active carbon plays the last but critical step of filtering the spirit.
