Lakrids by Bülow

Copenhagen, Denmark
Danish founder Johan Bülow always felt that licorice, a Scandinavian favorite, was underappreciated. That’s why he opened a small shop in Svaneke in 2007, cooking the confection on-site so customers could smell it from 100 meters away. (The first batch sold out in two hours—no surprises there.) Word quickly spread, and now fans the world over are finding delight in all the sweet and salty notes "lakrids" can offer.
