Italian Liquorice Wheels
Who invented the Liquorice Wheel? Was it a confectioner in Pontefract, or did those clever Romans have anything to do with it? The Italians have cultivated Liquorice since the earliest times, growing like weeds in southern Italy. Saint Valentines Liquorice Company has a long history of selling the best Italian Liquorice.
Traditional Italian Liquorice
Our Italian Liquorice Wheels are made by a company that makes liquorice confectionery longer than most. They use Calabrian liquorice extract. As a result, the confectionery industry recognises it as the best Liquorice, and our Italian liquorice wheels are delicious.
Hand made Liquorice Wheels.
Italian liquorice wheels were always traditionally made by hand. Workers used a spindle to roll the still warm liquorice strand into a spin by workers’ teams. In the UK, women workers in the factories in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, did this process.
What you love about liquorice wheels might be just the unique shapes and structure, but with ours, you’ll be getting the very best quality Liquorice from an online liquorice shop. You’ve made a great choice to enjoy them and give us a star rating on the review tab next door.

These taste so much better than ‘leading brand’ liquorice here in the UK! If you’re a liquorice lover (or know one) then you’re in for a real treat. They last for ages and are gorgeous quality. I’m very happy with the liquorice I bought, these are the ones I’m sticking to in the future for sure, and they’d make a lovely gift. Very, very happy.
