Plain Liquorice “Reglisse” Powder from Calabria – 50g


At some point everybody must have chewed on these little wooden sticks. This root is used to make antésite and is used in the production of pastis, an alcoholic drink from Marseille.
Liquorice is a herbaceous plant from the Fabaceae family, native to Syria, also called ‘black liquorice’ or ‘sweet wood’. The part most used is the root or rather the underground stem called the stolon. It is used in medicine due to its multitude of benefits, but also in confectionery and in liqueurs. Our liquorice comes from Italy, from the coastal area of Calabria, where it grows in the wild in an area where the glycyrrhizin level can develop.
The root is very sweet. The ancient Greeks named it Glycyrrhiza, from glukos meaning ‘sugar’ and riza meaning ‘root’. Care should be taken not to confuse the liquorice root with the aromatic extract derived from the root.

Powdered liquorice, or liquorice compound, can be added straight to recipes — whether that’s a pinch mixed into a meat rub, stirred into cake batter or added to a sweet custard.

Latin name :  Glycyrrhiza glabra
Origin : Calabria, Italy
Ingredients : 100 % liquorice (5-7 % glycyrrhizic acid)
Storage: Away from light, heat and moisture.



Le Comptoir Des Poivres has worked on an even higher quality new product range.

For several months the company have been pooling their skills, and they have sought out products of unquestionable quality using the same philosophy – they look for products directly at their production locations, they refuse any chemical treatments both on the plant and the product and any irradiation (hypocritically called ionisation), they ensure that the people working in the plantations work in optimal conditions, they require many selection processes to keep only the most exceptional grains or berries, they refuse any long storage and transport the products without intermediaries, that is to say with maximum traceability.

olivier derenne - le comptoir des poivreOlivier Derenne, Founder

“Since my rural childhood, my life has been a perpetual search for authentic flavours, either while pottering round vegetable gardens, on walks through forests, local markets, at auctions, bakeries, grandmothers’ or mothers’ kitchens, in master cooks’ kitchens or even on trips across the world.
I’m someone who is eager to discover new sensations, scents, textures, flavours, not just to own them, but also to share them.
I like to tell stories about the wonders that surround us and the passion of men and women who give the best of themselves to bring you something exceptional.
My objective: to source the best, the most exclusive, the most authentic and most surprising and then narrate, share, transmit and astonish…”
