What an apricot palinka from Kecskemét represents to Hungarians, is comparable to what whisky represents to the Scots and cognac to the French... The first stop of the Manufactory visit is the old distillery that was built in the beginning of the 20th century. Today it is an artefact of industrial history. After that, the visit continues in the new pálinka distillery, where we can follow the process all the way to the bottling, and the last stop is the museum's small shop, with a wide selection of drinks and gifts.
