The Apricot Remedy from Hungary.
Hungarians say Pálinka is medicine in small quantities. Well if that is true all medicine should taste like Pálinka! Spiritus Primus began distilling different Pálinkas in 2008 with a vision of cultivating land and preserving the Hungarian tradition in a 21st century environment. The distillery is based in Tiszaföldvár (wow, try to pronounce that), next to the River Tisza in central Hungary.
Spiritus Primus Palinka is made from apricots. It's distilled in small pots, and bottled without ageing. By Hungarian law the content has to be 100% fruit, without added alcohol, colourants, flavours or sweeteners. This is a drink that's interlaced in every aspect of life either to enhance joy, or to ease pain. Egészségedre (Cheers in English!).
- The first records of this spirit dates back to the 14th century. The word pálinka derives from the Slavic word pálit, meaning burn, to distil.
