Description:

Gschwindt is one of the oldest liqueur factories of Hungary, established inn 1856. The products of the company were very popular. One of their most liked good was 'Aqua Vitae' that is depicted on this poster. They said it was the water of life and was made with secrets of the monastery and special grasses. The strong man on the poster breaks through the gloomy period of the old liqueurs and simply runs over the old bottles. He brings the light and Aqua Vitae on his cart pulled by his heavenly white horses.
