We have a varied selection of Dutch Liquorices including the Salt Liquorice and Salty Liquorice which you’ll either love or hate!

Yorkshire has a history steeped in Liquorice and in 1750 there were 47 Liquorice Growers in Pontefract. Pontefract's rich loamy soil and deep topsoil made it perfect for growing Liquorice. By the 1940s Pontefract was producing 400 tons of Liquorice per week, and exporting it all over the world. Today liquorice is still manufactured into sweets in Pontefract, but it’s no longer grown there commercially.
