I try to be lady like as often as I can…keeping the truck driver, potty mouth for my road rage infused trips out to the Hamptons on the L.I.E (if you have ever done this…you know exactly what I am talking about). But I had to drop an “F” bomb with this one…because it was just THAT EFFEN GOOD (yes, folks, that is a play on words).
EFFEN Vodka is a super-premium vodka whose name means smooth, even and balanced in Dutch. It is made from a modified, century-old Dutch recipe featuring premium wheat. Most vodkas are produced from grapes, potatoes or corn, however it’s the wheat used to make EFFEN which creates it’s smooth taste on the palette.
