90-95 Points, Wine Enthusiast & Top Spirits for 2005!
Effen Vodka is made from premium wheat from Northern Holland. Wheat contains extremely low levels of fat and fatty acids. Fewer fatty acids mean less carmelization during distillation and the elimination of harsh alcohol aftertaste caused by traces of burnt sugar. The result is a silky, smooth liquid and the best vodka you can buy. ~Distiller's Notes
While others have tried to imitate Russian vodka production techniques, they have never totally succeeded. There are three key elements that separate Stoli from its imitators. First, Stoli is distilled from winter wheat, which is the best tasting wheat, not from corn or other grains. Produced in Russia's oldest distillery, its is considered the classic Russian vodka. Second, virtually all domestic vodka producers use processed water to reduce the product to its proper proof, while the makers of Stoli use the purest, softest glacial waters. Last Stoli is carefully filtered through both quartz and activated charcoal, then through quartz again.
