As one of the finest products of the Zwack House, its distinctive and characteristic taste became famous in many countries as early as the beginning of the twentieth century, when it was already marketed in this, the original bottle.
The famous apricots that grow in the orchards around the town of Kecskemét, and the Zwack Company's know-how in the art of distilling come together to produce a truly delectable apricot eau de vie. Fruit brandies have been a classic Hungarian tradition for centuries, mentioned in documents dating back as early as the fourteenth century. Fruit trees thrive in the climate of the Carpathian Basin and the orchards of Mitteleuropa have long been famous. The fruit is so rich in sugar that there is never any need to add sugar or alcohol to the mash after fermentation. First the fruit is carefully selected, then cleaned, the stones or pits removed, minced and fermented and finally distilled twice over to produce outstanding eaux-de-vie."
