The splendid Museum of Jan Becher, the man who created the world renowned beverage named after him, was opened to the public in March 1999. Here, in a succession of rooms redolent with rare herbs and spices, you can find absolutely everything that is associated with the activities of the Master and his company – bottles with all kinds of shapes and designs, rare gift packaging, ceramic and glass goblets, leaflets, posters, international exhibition awards and more. There is also something unusual – the collection of Becherovka imitations, drinks which look like the original, but which could not in any way match Becherovka’s unique bouquet and taste. In addition, there is a tasting room, where you can sample for yourself the original Becherovka.
