Unicum is an alcoholic, bitter tincture made up of 40 herbs and spices from all across the world. It has a dark color and it tastes quite bitter. The history of this unique drink goes back to over a hundred years when the Zwack family came up with the secret recipe. Unicum is still produced based on the same recipe, although during Communist regime, after the family had fled the country, the government took over the company and continued production based on a different recipe.

If you want to learn about Unicum, how it’s produced and about the fascinating history of the Zwack family, then make sure you visit the museum at the Unicum Factory.
