The "Pálinka of Hungary" will be created this year from the best 11 peach Pálinka of the country selected by experts. The Hungary's Peach Pálinka will be first presented at the Budapest Pálinka Festival at Buda Castle. The festival opens on 10th of May, and lasts until 13th of May and it's not only about Pálinka, but Hungarian gastronomy and folklore.
