    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.

    The multi-step process required for this vodka starts with filling a still with jalapeño, lime peel, and a non-GMO base spirit which passes through a chamber packed with fresh cilantro. The resulting spirit is then separated into parts and individually macerates with even more peppers: Serrano, habanero, red and yellow sweet bell before being carefully blended back together. Then this concoction is lightly-filtered and still maintains a slight green glow.
