BECH YOU CAN’T SIP JUST ONCE

DRINK

Becherovka—a deliciously amber, bittersweet liqueur flavoured with anise and cinnamon—originated in the Czech Republic as a herbal remedy. In 1807, pharmacist Josef Becher began selling his spicy formulation as “stomach drops,” until customers demanded bigger bottles. Corby Distilleries Ltd., Becherovka’s agent in Canada, hopes to expand distribution beyond the few outlets in Alberta and Ontario that currently carry the genuinely soothing concoction. Often served chilled, it’s ideal as either an aperitif or digestive. A cure-all. Danylo Hawaleshka
