UNICUM bitter liqueur
The 226-year-old Unicum bitter liqueur has become a very special drink for Hungarians. It was invented in 1790 by the physician of Emperor and Hungarian King Joseph II, one of the ancestors of the Zwack family. According to the story, one day dr. Zwack made a drink from special herbs and offered it to the Emperor who was constantly complaining of stomach pain, who than could not praise enough the wonderful product and cried out after the first mouthful: “Das ist ein Unicum!”. This is how he named the drink and Unicum started its journey to conquer the world. Unicum is a well-known popular drink in many countries, especially in Italy, Germany, Austria and parts of the Carpathian Basin with Hungarian residents.
