Effen Yuzu Citrus Vodka
Effen // Netherlands
Effen Yuzu Citrus Vodka is a flavored vodka from the Dutch brand released in April 2019. Yuzu is a fragrant citrus fruit with origins in China, but it is widely cultivated in Japan. Its flavor is described as a cross between grapefruit and lemon. Effen Yuzu Citrus is made with its standard 100% French wheat neutral spirit base. No added sugar or artificial flavors are used in its production.
Flavored VodkaDistilled from any agricultural product. It will be labeled with the (pre)dominant flavor(s) listed and can be artificially or naturally flavored.
"On the nose, this yuzu-flavored vodka is highly reminiscent of Squirt and its citrus soda ilk. A similar grapefruit-like flavor comes through in the form of bitter citrus rind and a bite of floral flavor, but is distinctly less full and inviting than in its aroma. It fades away slowly, leaving a slight tingle of black pepper."
