Unicum Zwack Bitters 70cl

Unicum is produced from 40 different herbs grown in various parts of the world. They are macerated and then distilled before being aged in old French oak casks for 6 months before bottling. Bitter is better is one of the USA advertising slogans designed to make Unicum a highly sought after drink in top New York bars. Thick, intense and dark brown in colour, Unicum has a characteristic perfume combining coffee, herbs and an almost medicinal, eucalyptus note. On the palate the tartness of the herbs offsets the with the sweetness of the underlying spirit, giving it an attractive balance and preventing it from cloying. Strong and clean on the finish, the herby notes continue through to the end.
