International Pálinka Tasting at the Economic Faculty
On the 25th of April, students of the Lámfalussy Economic Faculty took part in a pálinka tasting in the frame of a wine marketing seminar taught by Dr. habil. Zoltán Szabó PhD MBA.
Students had the opportunity to try the products of the Zsoldos Pálinka Manufacture, both from their traditional product line – involving the Irsai Olivér grape pálinka, one of the ’stars’ of the company, which won a gold medal at the International Wine and Spirit Competition in 2019 – and chili-infused pálinkas from the Capsicum product line. The products were introduced by György Vince sommelier, who talked about the company’s structure, strategy, marketing and future objectives as well and answered all the questions the students had.
The tasting had a special guest too: Tahir Taghizadeh, Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Hungary made a presentation introducing the wine culture and some aspects of wine production in Azerbaijan and provided the opportunity to taste some Azeri wines prior to György Vince’s pálinka tasting.
The students really enjoyed this unique opportunity – and the Zsoldos products; and the feedback of such and international group was truly useful to the company as well.
