This bold-tasting, ultra-premium liqueur is made from a secret family recipe that’s more than 200 years old and survived two world wars and the rise and fall of communism. The fiery spirit — renowned as the National Shot of Hungary — purportedly played a role in the 1956 Hungarian Revolution against the Communists, when Zwack bottles were used to fight back Soviet tanks after ammunition ran out. Zwack is produced in Budapest, Hungary at 80 proof. It is distributed nationally by Diageo North America.
