'Das is ein UNICUM', exclaimed Kaiser Joseph II when he first toasted the drink to the Zwack predecessor who, as the royal physician, created this speciality in 1790. Unicum has since become one of the most popular drinks in Hungary, representing quality and Hungarian tradition for over 200 years. Although Unicum's full recipe is kept secret, it is known to be made of a mixture of over 40 different medicinal herbs and spices. Its unique bittersweet taste and harmony is achieved by a 6-month period of aging in oak casks. Unicum may be drunk as both an aperitif or a digestif. It is enjoyable chilled but its flavours are best experienced at room temperature.

Tasting note: Nosing passes detect delicate odors of lead pencil, fennel and orris root, followed by herbal/vegetal/ spice scents. Palate entry is medicinal, astringent and deeply herbal; by midpalate, there’s an underlying nut taste that’s reminiscent of cola nut. Finishes intensely herbal and bitter. 40%Alc./Vol. Rating: 80-84
