From what was reported to me at Portland Cocktail Week, yes, Unicum will be reintroduced into the US some time in the near future, along with the plum flavored version.

I picked up the dusty bottle of Unicum, the label essentially fell off by the time I got home, but I am fairly certain I got the real deal as it is extremely bitter without much sweetness. The neck of the bottle had a stamp that indicated it was made in 1994.

I really enjoyed it, a ton of methol and herbaceaus character - the finish lasted for a long time. Very satisfying. May have to go pick up some more bottles as the price was right!
