The spirit of a brave village
Béres Quince ‘Pálinka’ from Erdőbénye, Tokaj
Once upon a time there was a young girl, who enchanted the invading Turkish rulers and saved many local souls with her wit and courage. Béres Vineyard and Winery dedicated a wine to this girl Magita, but now we would like to recommend a spirit from Erdőbénye, a 40% distilled drink made of 100% pure quince from the 1.8 hectare quince orchard of Béres.
In the northern hemisphere February is still cold winter, thus, as we say in Hungary: we need “liquid winter coat”. Well, ‘pálinka’, the Hungarian protected origin spirit made of 100% pure fruit is the best solution.
“Tropical fruits on the nose accompanied by notes of citrus and pear. The palate starts with the tartness coming from the peel of quince, but it is complemented with the delicious flesh of the fruit. Oily, silky structure and long, long finish.”
