Lakrids By Bülow, a licorice company born on the Danish island of Bornholm in 2007, is the only producer of handmade boiled licorice in the world. Created by Johan Bülow, this lauded company uses only the finest raw materials with no additives. Lakrids draws on the centuries-old Danish tradition of licorice-making to create classic flavors, like sweet and salty.
On 07.07.07 the first Lakrids by Johan Bülow shop opened in Svaneke, Denmark. The idea was to cook the licorice in the shop, making sure that you could smell it in a radius of 100 meters. It worked. Everything was sold out within two hours. The last customer even bought the sample bowl on the counter.
In 2008, Johan bought a licorice machine and installed it in his newly rented factory in Taastrup, scaling production, to meet demand. This is where licorice NO.1, NO.2, NO.3 and NO.4 were born.
#1 - SWEET
This is the pure essence of licorice, with the natural sweetness from the licorice root. Sweet taste balanced with strength and a touch of finesse from pure aniseed. To many, No.1 is not just their number one, it’s their one and only.
Rice flour, invert sugar, sugar, molasses, spray-dried licorice, glucose syrup, canola oil, salt, natural anise flavor, confectioner's glaze.
#2 - SALTY
When your lips close around a bite of this strong, salty licorice, the potent Nordic taste explodes on your tongue, bringing up associations of the sea, tar, bonfire smoke and the scent of resin. No.2 is the absolute favorite in the Nordic countries.
Rice flour, invert sugar, sugar, molasses, spray-dried licorice, ammonium chloride, canola oil, salt, natural anise flavor, confectioner's glaze.
#3 - RED
It has taken us more than 5 years to create Johan Bülow’s variation of American licorice. Red licorice – soft and chewy with natural fruit and juice. An exquisite taste of blackcurrant, cranberry, lemon and strawberry, balanced with licorice.
Glucose syrup, rice flour, sugar, invert sugar, blackcurrant juice concentrate color, dried cranberries, canola oil, lemon juice concentrate, spray-dried licorice, natural strawberry flavor, confectioner's glaze.
#4 - HABANERO
Licorice combined with fresh chili is a good example of how two natural forces can create a new taste sensation. Sweet licorice with spicy Habanero chili – prepare for a hot yet harmonious bite.
Rice flour, invert sugar, sugar, molasses, spray-dried licorice, glucose syrup, canola oil, salt, habanero chili pepper, natural anise flavor, confectioner´s glaze.
