Effen Cucumber Flavored Vodka
This score falls in the 94th percentile of all spirits in the Vodka category and is an example of the very best in its class.
Effen vodka is made in the Netherlands and takes it's name from the Dutch word for "smooth, even, balanced" according to their marketing website. It is made from Dutch wheat and filtered through charcoal in a "bottom up" fashion (patented, according to the website) where the distillate is forced up the through carbon by pumps rather than letting it filter down by mere gravity. This is thought to increase contact with the charcoal and improve purity. It was originally founded by Planet 10 Spirits, which was later bought up by Barton Brands--then of Constellation Brands. Barton is now part of Sazerac but the Effen brand remains with Constellation.
Effen Cucumber vodka is a combination of cucumber and vanilla flavors.
Effen Cucumber was named Best Flavored Vodka in the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
