Private pálinka distilling still illegal, says customs authority

Even though some chapters of the amendment to the excise tax act will come into force from August 1, the changes concerning the excise tax itself will only apply 45 days after that date, Hungary's customs and finance guard VPOP announced.

VPOP said private individuals are still prohibited from distilling their own pálinka.

Parliament approved a bill to amend the excise tax act on July 22. (MTI – Econews)
