The mysterious liqueur Becherovka: Jan Becher Museum
Taste the most famous of Czech herbal liqueurs and find out more about its history. Jan Becher founded his company more than two centuries ago and nowadays, Becherovka is a world famous brand. The secret of its ingredients is carefully guarded, only known to two people. It is however certain that the liqueur is produced using water from Karlovy Vary and from the herbs which grow in the surrounding area. Visit the museum and see the Becher pipeline, which connected the individual cellars, ancient barrels with colourful decoration or period bottles with labels yellowed with age. You can also taste the mysterious liqueur during the tour. You will find a house bearing the name of the famous liqueur in the villa district of Karlovy Vary. The villa of the Becher family was recently opened to the public and refashioned into an interactive gallery for young artists.
