Soak the gelatin in cold water.
Place the berries in a bowl with half of the sugar and stir until they start to release a bit of their juice.
Pour a splash of cream into a small pan and heat. Add the gelatin and the remainder of the sugar and whisk until everything has dissolved.
Mix the warm cream with the cold cream. Place the skyr in a bowl that is large enough to accommodate all the ingredients. Pour the cream over the skyr and whisk until everything is well mixed.
Put one large spoonful of the mixed berries in the bottom of each glass. Pour over the skyr and cream mixture and store in a cold place for 5 hours, or overnight.
Shred the fresh licorice root over the top to serve.
