Hungarian brandy in U.S.?

I'd like to find out whether Vilmos pear brandy is available in the United States.

  1. You can find a few brands of Korte Palinka in the US, but I'm not sure if Vilmos is one of them.

      Vilmos is not a korte palinka (anymore). In the last years regulation has changed, now you can call "palinka" brandies that doesn't content anything else than fruit brandy and water. Vilmos contents unfortunately other ingredients like caramel, aroma etc.
