According to the regulations of “kisüsti” technology, the capacity of the pot still cannot be larger than 1000 litres. It is a traditional double distillation method. During the first step of the process, a liquid better known as “alszesz” (raw alcohol) is produced. Raw alcohol is not suitable for direct consumption; it is neither too strong, nor too fragrant. In the second step raw alcohol is refined through re-distillation, in a smaller pot still. The result of this stage is the original “kisüsti” palinka.
