Becherovka

Becherovka Herbal

Only two people know the recipe for Becherovka (known as Becher Bitter in German), with its bitter-sweet accents of cinnamon, clove and ginger. This specialty liqueur has been made in Karlovy Vary (also known as Carlsbad) for over 200 years and is now exported to more than 35 countries.

The secret recipe contains around 20 exotic herbs and spices added to pure alcohol, sugar solution and local water then matured in oak barrels to achieve the quality aroma and unique taste.

The recipe has been unchanged since 1807 and same bottle design has been used since 1838. Becherovka first won the Medaille d’Or and the Grand Prix at the World Fair in Paris in 1871, while Ferdinand Karl, Archduke of Austria used to order 100 bottles per month.

Becherovka is manufactured using the latest techniques and production facilities. Every batch is laboratory tested to ensure it meets the same high standards of taste, smell and appearance.

Once a family firm, Becherovka is now owned by Pernod Ricard. It’s commonly drunk before or after meals as an aid to digestion – we think you’ll love it any time of day.

Serving suggestion

Spicy and aromatic, Becherovka makes the ideal ingredient for a range of cocktails. For example:

Be-ton (BEcherovka and TONic) is a traditional aperitif devised in 1967 for the Montreal World Expo. (Beton means concrete in Czech.) To make this delicious drink, mix 5cl of Becherovka with 10cl of tonic water and serve over ice with a squeeze of lemon juice.
