Gelato Licorice

High quality whole milk, fresh cream, sugar and pure liquorice powder. A recipe like this with a few simple ingredients is the only way that liquorice enthusiasts can fully enjoy the taste complexity of this legendary root. Grom's liquorice gelato has clear, incisive, persistent aromas, so we think it's best on its own. But if you want to be daring, try it with fiordilatte, or - if you are looking for freshness! - with lemon.



Licorice is a herbaceous plant with an erect stem that can grow up to one meter high, which has spread spontaneously in the warmest parts of the Mediterranean region. We have chosen to buy our licorice from one of the oldest producers in Italy, Amarelli of Rossano Calabro, in the province of Cosenza. Since 1731 Amarelli has been producing exclusively the finest licorice in the region – that of the Ionic coast, where the glycyrrhizin content exalts the aromatic notes of the slenderest roots, those that are used to produce the extremely pure powder. It is thanks to this fine and impalpable powder that we are able to make a gelato fit for true licorice enthusiasts. Enjoy it!

Fresh whole milk


In order to have fresh milk daily, we chose to use high-quality milk from cows raised in Piedmont. The evaluations of the stalls and milking barn are even more rigorous: this allows us to gently pasteurize the milk, without altering its organoleptic properties, while maintaining its finest qualities.
