Proof66 Notes

Jan Becher - Karlovarska Becherovka was founded in 1807 by Josef Becher who was a pharmacist selling his wares as medicine. Presumably, through a combination of great taste and high-proof, it became more and more popular for what ailed people. The brand has had a history of independent ownership but was eventually acquired by Pernod-Ricard.

Becherovka bitters is a traditional Czech liqueur made principally with anise, cinnamon, and 32 other herbs. They suggest serving cold. It's said to be made with all natural ingredients from local European producers.

The original classic herbal liqueur of its kind, much more subtle (if I can use the word for such liqueur) than its much more advertised cousin Jaegermeister.

So, some neighbors dashed in at the tail end of a party insisting that I drink this stuff. God damn it if they weren't right and I should've been drinking it all night long.
