They found a Dutchman who help them distilled the alcohol and in effect the Dutch name Effen came into play. The Effen means "smooth" in the Dutch. It turned out that Effen was also a foul word in English. Hence, they used the double meaning for their marketing purpose. After not meeting up to expectations when it comes to sales, it was sold to the Fortune brand who previously lost their right to produce "absolute" in the united states.
