Only found out about this tour after going on the hop on hop off bus (if you have a ticket for this then you can get a discount on the entrance fee) it was very cheap and only worked out about £5 each. For this we got to watch a video about the family behind the drink and had a... More

The whole thing is just INTERESTING! for ~6€pp price you get a very nice guided tour, tasting of 2 flavours of Hungarian national drink, an immersion into history of success of the factory and a view of hundreds tiny lil collectable bottles of alcohol. The factory is actually running one. A definite must see when in Budapest.

Spent a pleasant hour or so exploring the Unicum distillery and museum as well as learning about the history of the Zwack family and their pivotal roll in the business. Fell lucky with a private tour as a large tour party had just gone in ahead. Included in the price are a couple of generous shots of the old medicine.... More

It's absolutely worth it! You need 1h or 1,5 h tops. You are shown to the cellar where you are explained the manufacturing process and then you get to try the Unicum and Unicum Szilva. Later or before you're shown a 15 min video about the history of the Zwack family, very interesting. There is also a small memorabilia museum... More

Visiting this museum was beyond my expectations. I have already tasted Unicum several times but in the cellar we could also try out unfiltered Uncium right from the old casks! I liked the miniature collection as well, it was interesting to find some familiar bottles. We had a 5 % discount off from the products in the shop. Everyone was... More

The tour through time from the origin of Unicum through to present time is absolutely amazing. The family history intertwined with the production of this unique Hungarian beverage. The tour takes visitors into to cellar and provides a tasting - directly from the Oak barrels. Once the tour is complete, visitors are envied to the museum. The history in that... More

Very impressed with the 'story' telling. Film was in English with subtitles (with 2 deaf sons) impressed us a lot (many info centres lack the subtitle facility!!). A tour afterwards was very interesting though I have to say Unicum is definitely a desired taste!! Not for me I am afraid but my sons quite liked the Unicum gold. My daughter... More

Really enjoyed the informative video at the start of the tour. Plus a quick walk through the process and various buildings before being offered a couple shots of 2 different kinds of Zwack. Then, my favorite part, the mini-bottle collection. This place is definitely worth seeing in Budapest. You should also check out their TV commercials if you haven't seen... More
