Unicum is a Hungarian herbal bitters (herbal digestive liqueur), drunk as a digestive and apéritif.
The liqueur is today produced by Zwack according to a secret formula of more than forty herbs, and the drink is aged in oak casks. Unicum was created by Dr. József Zwack, the Royal Physician to the Habsburg Court, for Emperor Joseph II in 1790. It was not until 1840 that his 20-year-old son, József Zwack founded J. Zwack & Co. the first Hungarian liqueur manufacturer. By the early 1900s, the Zwack company had become one of the leading distilleries in central Europe, producing over 200 liqueurs and spirits, exported all over the world.
Some of the herbs and spices are distilled, some are macerated, then blended together and aged in oak casks at the factory in Budapest for over 6 months. The dark amber hue is achieved with added caramel color.
Unicum is regarded as one of the national drinks of Hungary.
This bitter, bold taste herbal liqueur is mainly consumed as an aperitif before meals or a digestif after meals.
