Wouldn't it be great if people with amazing family histories quit using them to prop up their own superiority, and started using them as a reason for everyone to celebrate? Like, "My ancestor came over on the Mayflower, and invented the color beige -- so let's party at my boathouse!"
Inviting you to raise a shot to their incredible story: Zwack, packing more than two centuries of defiant festiveness in every bottle.
Made from a secret blend of more than 40 herbs and spices, Zwack was created in 1790 by a physician to Hungarian Emperor Joseph II's royal court -- making him far more popular than the doctor pushing new techniques in leeching. Now the oldest shot in the world, the liqueur not only survived the rise and fall of the USSR (the recipe surrendered to the puppet government during nationalization was a clever fake), it also played a key role in the Hungarian Revolution: legend has it that Zwack bottles were used as Molotov cocktails against communist armies. To this day, Zwack continues to align itself with international combat, as the official sponsor of the Air Hockey World Championships, won this year by the "Iron Dragon", Davis Lee Huynh (some guys have all the...puck).
