About Salt Liquorice

Salmiak salt gives salty liquorice an astringent, salty taste akin to that of tannins - a characteristic of red wines, which adds both bitterness and astringency to the flavour. Consuming salmiak liquorice can stimulate either a savoury or non-savoury palate and response.

The Netherlands is the largest producer of liquorice sweets in the European Union and where we have sourced most our our salty range. The Dutch love liquorice, eating more than 32 thousand tons per year - much of it "zoute"!

Not sure which Dutch Liquorice to choose? 

We have a few suggestions for you.....

  • For a gentle introduction to the joys of salmiak liquorice, traditional Dutch liquorice Schoolkrijt (Dutch Chalks) are a very popular choice. You get soft sweet Liquorice with a slight Salmiak hint wrapped in a crunchy Peppermint Shell. Alternatively, Limburgse Kat (cats) is sweet with a strong liquorice flavour, a very mild salmiak (Salt) taste and a firm texture.
  • After a primarily salty liquorice? Jujubes are a popular Dutch Black liquorice option. Salmiak Rocks are also extremely popular
  • After Dubbel Zoute? Our personal choice is Zoute Zeesterren (Salty Starfish) - they are soft and very salty
  • If you like Belgian Chocolate and indulgence, any of the Lakrid salted offerings are a great choice. You can't go wrong with Lakrids salted caramel chocolate coated liquorice!.
