First marketed in 1807, the liqueur was created through partnership between Czech Josef Vitus Becher and Dr. Christian Frobrig, an Englishman who was Prince Maxmillian Friedrich von Plettenberg’s personal physician. In 1805, the Prince had come to Karlovy Vary, the famous spa town where Becher lived, for his healthcare Forbrig met with Becher and the two discussed the medical benefits of herbs, as they began to work on a new medicine together. After a couple of years of tinkering, Becher started to sell his new “English Bitter” as a tonic for the stomach.

The liqueur is made with 20 different kinds of botanical, that remain secret, though it is thought to include cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and mint.
