E11EVEN Vodka is produced by the E11EVEN 24/7 Ultraclub in Miami, but on a scale of 1-10, does this Miami spirit get an E11EVEN?
The E11EVEN describes itself as a 24/7 Ultraclub and opened in downtown Miami in 2014. It’s the kind of nightclub that is more of an experience, and a lifestyle brand. I’ve never been but it must be something as it’s been on lists of the Top-10 Nightclubs in America, awarded by Nightclub & Bar, and even the Top-50 Clubs in the world, as listed by DJ Magazine. And now comes E11EVEN Vodka.
Making E11EVEN Vodka
E11EVEN Vodka is entirely Miami-made and bottled. It uses 100% Florida-grown non-GMO corn, is distilled six times in copper stills, and then goes through a proprietary seven-step filtration process. It’s then bottled at 40% ABV (80 proof).
The E11EVEN Vodka Bottle
The bottle is truly impressive. It helps that it holds 1 liter, making it bigger than normal, so it certainly stands head and shoulders above most bottles on the shelves. The E11EVEN name is prominent on the neck and down the front, in a simple but elegant style. There’s not much else on show, giving a surprisingly understated look. It obviously is intended to say ‘classy vodka’, and it succeeds.
Tasting E11EVEN Vodka
On the nose there’s a definite warmth about it, with citrus and liquorice aromas. There’s a dash of peppery spice as well, and all in all it’s a subtle and enjoyable aroma.
The citrus and liquorice are there on the palate too, along with some grassy and herbal tastes, and a hint of vanilla. It does have a slightly rough edge to it, though it’s not too bad for a vodka in its price range (see below), and the finish is reasonably smooth with the vanilla lingering.
The Bottom Line
The vodka is a standard 40% ABV (80 proof). It’s all natural and gluten-free. While not being earth-shattering this is a decent and smooth vodka, and with the classy bottle to put on display the recommended price of $29.99 for a big 1-liter bottle seems very fair.
Buying E11EVEN Vodka
You can obviously try E11EVEN Vodka at the club itself, and in bars and restaurants around southern Miami. If you live further afield, you can buy the vodka from the E11EVEN Vodka website and also get a bottle from Drizly.
