Effen // Netherlands

Unflavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product, most commonly grains or potatoes. Typically distilled to 95% ABV. Water is added to bring the spirit down to as low as 37.5% ABV in the EU and 40% ABV in the US. It is usually filtered, often with charcoal, prior to bottling. It is almost always clear and unaged.
"This vodka shows a pleasantly soft nose of creamed wheat, toasted vanilla, and hints of dulce de leche. When tasted the spirit fills the mouth with a pleasant richness and echoes many of the sweet aromatics in an inviting but not saccharine way. The finish is pleasantly smooth and shows a creamy character that will pair nicely in fruit juices or sweeter cocktails."
