Most of us have chewed on a piece of confectionary black liquorice at some time in our lives, though you probably never regarded liquorice as a medicinal herb. History tell us that liquorice has been as much as a medicine as for its flavour.
The modern liquorice we know as a sweet was created in 1760 by Yorkshire apothecary George Dunhill. He started using sugar and flour to stretch the pricey medicinal liquorice essence he sold, and confectionary liquorice was born. Dunhill’s customers clamoured for more, and it wasn’t long before several factories in England were manufacturing it. So treasured and in demand was the new product that the English tried to keep the recipe a national secret.
