Starting by March 2013, the Holocaust Memorial Center and the Zwack Unicum Heritage Visitors’ Centre in Budapest, which also includes the Zwack Sample Shop and Family Museum, will issue joint visitors tickets. The tickets, on discount price, will be valid both for the exhibition displaying the Zwack family history and the exhibit of the Holocaust Memorial Center. By introducing this option, favorable for visitors, the two institutions aim at providing a complemented history of the Holocaust, enriched by a comprehensive overview of the development of industry and culture, through the highlights of the 200-years long saga of the Zwack family.
Unicum, with a secret blend of more than 40 different herbs and spices is also known as the National Shot of Hungary. It 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, Jozsef 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.
