AS UNIQUE AS OUR VODKA, THE HOOGHOUDT DISTILLERY USES A METICULOUS, HIGHLY INNOVATIVE FILTRATION PROCESS TO CRAFT EFFEN INTO ITS FEARLESSLY SMOOTH FINEST
A resolute quest for the best is at the absolute heart of everything we create. That’s exactly why we partner with the world-renowned Hooghoudt distillery where quality, attention to detail and expertise are poured into every single bottle.
In 2002 we co-collaborated to transform their 120-year old neutral grain spirit recipe into an on-point vodka of today, tomorrow and way beyond.
A fourth generation Dutch family vodka distillery, Hooghoudt work with a directional continuous distillation system that delivers our distinctive smooth EFFEN taste. The liquid is chill-distilled and carbon filtered before being blended with the purest spring water from the local Groningen reservoir in northern Holland.
FILTRATION: THE LOWDOWN
Filtered through active carbon proven to eliminate impurities to ensure exceptional vodka clarity
A specialist ‘bottom up’ filtration process prevents air channel formation for sublime flavor
Optimal contact time between liquid and active carbon creates our inimitable EFFEN taste profile
Distillation: The Definitive Difference
Continuously distilled for ultimate clarity and quality using a unique vacuum technique. This works at lower temperatures, reducing the risk of caramelization resulting in a difference you can taste and smell.
Ingredients with integrity
EFFEN is proud to only work with the finest quality naturally-sourced ingredients. It’s something we will never compromise on. The quality speaks for itself…
We distill all our vodka from 100% premium wheat grain containing the purest kind of starch. The end result is a liquor of unparalleled taste and a smooth finish.
Water forms a key component in expert vodka production and is vital for ensuring a clean, crisp flavor. We use a mix of water from the Drentsche Plateau and the Drentsche AA National Landscape – a nature reserve in northern Holland revered as the source of the purest water in the country.
