Our Traditional Flavours
We are famous for our creamy, silky-smooth ice cream and we are humbled that sampling one of our many delicious flavours has become synonymous with a visit to Beddgelert.
Having studied our craft for over 50 years, we know a thing or two about Ice Cream...
Made daily on site in Beddgelert, we make our Ice Cream exclusively with fresh Welsh milk and butter. We never use fat substitutes. Our sorbets are made with real fruit. We are passionate about championing local suppliers and ingredients, such as Halen Mon in our Salted Caramel. We source from the UK where possible, including our cones. We only source the best quality Italian flavours, using only natural colours.
You can’t actually make Ice Cream without whipping some air into the mix. Our Ice Cream is a premium product due to the low percentage of air in our recipes. Economy ice creams can have up to four times as much air to compensate for the low prices at which it is sold (Ice Cream Alliance, 2021).
We are ‘Artisan’ Ice Cream makers. Our Ice Creams and Dairy-Free Sorbets are made daily on site in Beddgelert. We use the best ice cream machinery in the World to create small batches, filling our pots and pans by hand and decorating each flavour individually.
We were the first Ice Cream Parlour in the UK to use a specialist ‘pozzetti’ display freezer. The combination of glycol and air-cooled technology is more environmentally friendly and preserves the quality of our Ice Cream, without compromising on the ability to see the beautiful display. We go to great lengths to source packaging that is either recyclable or compostable and avoid ‘single-use’ plastics wherever possible.
