This is quite a catch; the best pálinka of Balaton and the chattiest pálinka master in the same spot. A German chap founded Zimek Pálinka Manufaktúra in Zamárdi a few years ago and it did not take them long to start winning awards on both the national and international level. If the award-winning booze and the wide variety flavours (quince, mahaleb cherry, törköly etc.) are not enough to convince you to visit the place on the edge of Zamárdi (right beside the exit from M7) they still have more to offer. In the right season, you can follow through the pálinka-making process with Gábor Pach, the pálinka master. He loves his profession and loves to entertain visitors; you can taste 10-12 different kinds of pálinka while listening to his success stories and adventures.
