Discover More About Our Products

Becherovka is a traditional Czech liqueur. It is also called Třináctý pramen, which means 'Thirteenth source'. This unique liqueur is produced in the spa town of Karlovy Vary. Its history dates back to 1807, and its name comes from its inventor, the pharmacist Josef Vitus Becher.

It is already remarkable for its natural preparation and the use of the renowned Carlsbad alkaline water. The success of this exquisite liqueur, in fact, is due not only to the excellent quality of the water, but also to the fact that it is free of added chemical ingredients or any type of preservative or emulsifier. Its secret lies in the skilful use of natural herbs and sugars, which create a completely natural herbal bitter.

As has often happened, Becherovka was also created as a natural remedy for various ailments and to aid digestion. Josef Becher spent two years of his life perfecting this unique recipe. Today, we can enjoy this liqueur even in perfect health! Drink it cold or use it to create so many cocktails!
