SPIRITUS PRIMUS – WHERE THE SPIRIT BEGINS

YOUR OWN PÁLINKA

Pálinka is a traditional Hungarian variety of fruit brandies made by the distillation of fermented fruit, except törkölypálinka (pomace pálinka) that is also classified as pálinka, which is a pomace distillate. Pálinka, törkölypálinka and some of their local varieties have protection of origin under EU regulation: the term „pálinka” can be used only by Hungary and four provinces of Austria. Similar fruit distillates produced in Romania can only be marketed under the name Pălincă.

The most common ingredients are plums, pears, apples, apricots, cherries, grape pomace and strawberries, but pálinka can be made from any variety of fruit grown in Hungary (in the Austrian provinces it can only be made from locally grown apricots). Pálinka production is regulated by the 2008. LXXIII. Law of the Republic of Hungary (Pálinka Law).

According to this, only those products can use the name pálinka or törkölypálinka (pomace pálinka) that

• are made from fruits or pomace grown in Hungary
• have 100% fruit content, that is, they do not contain added alcohol, colourants, flavours and sweeteners
• have an alcohol content of at least 37.5%

According to the new regulations introduced in 2010 every citizen over the age of 18 is entitled to produce 100 litres of 43°pálinka or 50 litres of 86°pálinka using their own fruit or fruit purchased for this purpose. These volumes are exempt from excise duty as well; anyone who distills more than that or wishes to sell their pálinka has to pay excise according to the applicable regulations.
