Agriculture: Commission approves a new geographical indication from Hungary – ‘Sárréti kökénypálinka’

The Commission approved the addition of ‘Sárréti kökénypálinka‘as Geographical Indication (GI) from Hungary. ‘Sárréti kökénypálinka’ is a fruit spirits with a minimum alcoholic strength of 38,5% V/V and a volatile substance content of at least 250 g/hl of 100% vol. alcohol. It is a pálinka with a rich volatile substance content and an aroma reminiscent of sloe flower. ‘Sárréti kökénypálinka’ is full-bodied, with notes of almond and marzipan, and is slightly sweet, which gives this spirit drink a lighter, smoother character but at the same time evokes the somewhat tart taste of sloe.

This new denomination will be added to the list of over 260 spirit drinks already protected. The list of all protected geographical indications can be found in the eAmbrosia database.

More information is available online at Quality Schemes and on our GIView portal.
