bza commented on 3/10/2015:

I brought it back from New York (Astor W&S). I bought it exclusively to make The Fall of Man, which was very good but not as good as some other Beta cocktails that required rare ingredients (like the Warning Label - Lemon Hart 151 is the best).

Unicum is so much better than Zwack. It's closer to Fernet, which actually might be an ok substitution in this drink.

If you can find it, try Unicum Plum. Delicious.
