Is Unicum essentially a "Echinacia & Goldenseal" herbal liquor?
If you've ever been in an herb shop and opened their large glass bottles of echinacia or goldenseal, you'd immediately recognize the bouquet of Zwack's Unicum liquor! Though Zwack may assert that Unicum's ~40 herb recipe is a "secret"... it's plain this is essentially an echinacia/goldenseal herbal liquor (with the 38 other herbs tinkered in for minor side-note effects). If you're "into" herbs as alternative/complementary/legacy medicinals... this is your brew! Notice the red cross on the front of the bottle... As a good health tonic (and it IS!), this stuff is cheap!!
very good FIRST TIME I bought any liquor on line did not take to receive, packing was A-One .
Glad to find a source for Zwack!
