If you're looking to sample the local culture then do so with this brilliantly boozy hen party Local Spirit Tasting in Budapest! You'll get to experience five different legendary liqueurs and discover the fascinating history of some of Budapest's best-loved beverages!
Put the vodka, G&Ts, and Jgerbombs to the side, you're in a whole new country now, and it's about time you discovered some of the best spirits in the 'Pest! Your expert will introduce you to some intense, diverse, highly boozy drinks (one of them contains a 70% alcohol content!) which you'll enjoy with some complimentary pretzels.
In case you hadn't already guessed, Palinka will be one of your poisons! Well, not your poison, it's actually quite the opposite; the people of Hungary believe that this ancient spirit cures everything, you could say it's actually pretty healthy. A popular saying in the country is 'What can be used to prepare jam can also be used to produce Palinka'. It's made from many fruits including pears, plums, cherries, apples and mulberries, so it's practically one of your five-a-day, right?
Amongst other local drinks, you'll try the famous Unicum, a thick, intense, oaky liqueur that's often drunk as a digestif or aperitif. It's made up of a mix of forty herbs which offset the sweetness. It almost has a medicinal taste, who knows, maybe this spirit tasting activity is just what the doctor ordered?! It's not to everyone's taste, but if you sip with an open mind, then you may discover why everyone loves it so much!
As you sip your tasty tipples and snack at your fresh pretzels, your expert will uncover the history of these classic drinks, so you can fully appreciate the spirits the next time you find yourselves in one of Budapest's buzzing bars (be sure to check out their ruin bars when you are there, they're not to be missed!).
This unique, exciting session is a great way to taste the local culture and kickstart your night in style!
