What makes this drink special
Pear is not as popular as strawberry and apple for example, but it has its own unique qualities that make it one of the most widely-used fruits in the food and drink industry. You must have already heard about the famous plum brandy. Did you know that pear is suitable for making palinka as well? The process is called distillation. This aged pear palinka is one of the most popular products of Szicsek Palinka Distillery’s product range. Basically, this drink is pear bread in a bottle with a hint of whiskey-like flavour.
The meaning of the word “palinka” is obvious. But what does “3-years-old” refer to? It means that this unique spirit is aged in charred oak kegs for at least 3 years before bottling. The so called “old” palinka (Hungarian: ópálinka) has an official definition as well: fruit brandy aged for at least one year in wooden barrels smaller than 1000 liters or for at least two years in wooden barrels of 1000 liters or more.
Sweet smelling, aged pear palinka is a special whiskey-like spirit with the true essence of ripe pear in the bottle. Perfect drink for family gatherings, anniversaries or birthday parties or as a gift for those who like high-quality, 100% natural, artisan spirits. Fresh, strong and sweet smelling drink, made in the age-old traditional way. Similarly to classic pear palinka, this delicious aged pear palinka is a perfect accompaniment to light meals and desserts. Best served on its own. Do not mix it into cocktails.
