An English physician, Dr Frobridge, who was visiting the small Czech spa town of Karlovy Vary as the personal physician to Count Zu Pletenberg-Mietingen, originally produced Becherovka as a stomach 'medicine' in 1805.

Demand led to factory production, which started in 1807 at Karlovy-Vary, west of Prague (which, under the Austrians, was Karlsbad - hence the drink's alternative name, Carlsbad Becher). Now the Czech national liqueur, Becherovka is matured in oak and contains cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and other herbs.

Αξιολόγηση


Η γευσιγνωσία έγινε στις 19/10/2016

Όψη:

Clear, pale golden amber.

Μύτη:

complex, herbal and spicy - particularly cinnamon and cloves.

Στόμα:

Lightly silky and honeyed with a changing range of sweetness and bitterness, with rootiness, cloves, baked apples, hint of cough medicine, dried mint and humbugs.

Επίγευση:

Long herbal spicy finish with lingering rooty bitterness and clove.

Συνολική αίσθηση:

Sipped neat Becherovka is a settling digestif but it is mostly enjoyed mixed with tonic water. However, it is a fantastic cocktail ingredient, particularly in beer cocktails. Bartenders - perhaps view this as strong Czech falernum.
