The Licorice Museum
Ancient records show that around 1500 the family Amarelli marketed underground branches of a plant, licorice. In 1731, in order to maximize the use of this typical product of the Ionian coast, the Amarelli founded a proto-industrial system, called "ashlar", for the extraction of juice from the roots of this healing plant. So come the licorice, black, brilliant, seductive joy of children, but also, more importantly, adults who enjoy the pleasures of a healthy and natural. Today you can visit the Museum of licorice factory "George Amarelli" which received the 2001 "Award Gugghenheim Enterprise & Culture" and in 2004 the "Italian Post" wanted to recognize the uniqueness of this museum, dedicating a stamp series "The Italian artistic and cultural heritage."
Today Amarelli produces and sells various products such as licorice root sticks, candy, sugar-free candy, chocolate candy, grappa, licorice, licorice from Calabria, liqueurs, mints, licorice root.
The company operates in Italy and exports to Europe, America, Asia and Australia.
