Sour cherry palinka created from the finest fruit. Sour cherries might not be much to look at, but are giants in the taste department. This award winner palinka is made using a traditional family recipe. A sip of this treasured elixir will make the flavours of the Hungarian countryside come alive in your mouth, revealing a layered world of fruity aromas that only the finest liquors can evoke.
Palinka is the national drink of Hungary, renowned as the ‘queen of all fruit brandies’. It is made from only the ripest fruits, which are de-stoned and then fermented for 10-15 days, and then distilled. Finally, the palinka is matured in wooden barrels which imbues it with additional flavour and colour.
Palinka is recommended to be served at 18-23 Celsius to maximise its aroma and flavour.
It won Silver medal at the 2017 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
It received 1 Star at the 2018 Great Taste Award.
