WHAT IS PÁLINKA?2019. 03. 17.
It grew here. It was distilled here. Only from fresh fruits. Sugar-free. It is ours!
The definition of palinka in the EU has limitations: the name pálinka can only be used for those spirits that are produced in Hungary, exclusively from fruit grown in our country. Adding sugar to the mash just to give it some extra flavour is absolutely forbidden. Austria is the only country that received the rights to use the name apricot palinka in four of its provinces. Original, high-quality palinka is transparent, colourless; but of course other varieties, such as “ágyas” (bedded) or “érlelt” (aged) have different colours.
