Becherovka is connected with Karlovy Vary as much as the healing hot springs. Jan Becher started making the herbal liquor in its pharmacy in year 1807. Originally, it was used as stomach drops. The drink then gained worldwide popularity. For over 200 years, the liquor production has been shrouded by secrets and the exact ratio of ingredients is passed on from a father to son. Today, only 2 people know the recipe. If you are interested in the liquor and its history, you can visit the Jan Becher Muzeum, where you can watch a short documentary about Becherovka, where you can see the original cellars or items related to the liquor production.
