Real Pálinka is the pure fruit spirit that's 100% natural and 0% artificial.
It's like your favorite organic smoothie, but with a kick! No added sugars or artificial flavorings are allowed during the process, just perfect ripe fruit with outstanding sugar and natural yeast qualities.
Only noble and wild fruits grown in Hungary can make the cut for this spirit, which preserves the ephemeral taste and aroma of the fruit for decades. And don't even think about sweetening or coloring it – that's a big no-no. With an alcoholic strength ranging between 40% ABV and 60% ABV, this drink is strictly made by authorized commercial distilleries. So, if you're looking for the real deal, look for the label that says "pálinka". Just remember, if it's not made with the best Hungarian fruit, it's just a wannabe "distillate".
