Zwack Fütyülős owes its unique and unparalleled fruity flavour and bouquet to the use of the famous Hungarian apricot of superior quality grown in the orchards around the town of Kecskemét. It was to become really popular during the 18th century and was used to serve the wine in restaurants and inns. The bottle was both practical – with its solid base it didn’t tip over easily – and fun. If blown into it makes the whistling sound to which it owes its name – Fütyülős meaning whistle. Patrons at the inn would blow into the bottle to indicate it was empty and needed a refill.
Edward Prince of Wales, visited Hungary and became an ardent fan of Fütyülős, asking for it everywhere he went – in restaurants, hotels, even on the train on hiw way to and from Hungary. It is to him that we owe the famous quote: „ In soda it is better than whisky and in tea it is better than rum.” From then on, Fütyülős Apricot Distillate never looked back.
