Magyar Living Newsletter #156

Welcome! Isten Hozott!
June 2019

Welcome to our e-newsletter! Our goal is to share information that helps you stay connected with your Hungarian heritage! If you hear of a business with a strong Hungarian focus or if you see something you think might be interesting to a wider audience, please send a message to! We often find out about things because you cared enough to spread the word!


ChainBridge Distillery

When we were in Florida in June we had several people mention a new, Hungarian, family-run distillery that had recently opened near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We were finally able to visit ChainBridge Distillery in May and if you ever travel in the area, you should stop in for a chat, tour, and sample! Their fruit brandy is very smooth! We enjoyed learning about the distilling process, visiting with the owners, and having our opportunity to taste their creations! Their still is even from Hungary! Check out their website and be sure to make a connection! Your support of this (and other) Hungarian businesses is invaluable! You can find them on Facebook or see their address below!

ChainBridge Distillery 3500 NE 11th Ave, Oakland Park, FL 33334
