Highly respected and much adored Devon based artisan ice cream producer, Granny Gothards, have been busy beavering away on many initiatives over the last 12 months and delighted to announce that that their pioneering new format of artisan ice cream has launched within 60 selected Waitrose Stores; a tremendous accolade to the quality, creativity and passion for everything they do and firmly believe in.
Waitrose hand selected the luxurious flavours of Salted Honey, White Chocolate & Raspberry and Intense Belgian Chocolate – a powerful trio of flavours! Using only the finest and local ingredients, with milk fresh from the morning milking at Oak Park Dairy, lashings of West Country cream and Clarence Court eggs – a perfect illustration that nature truly does produce the best flavours.
Amanda, Granny Gothards Director, explains how the product was born: “Here at Granny Gothards, creativity is our driving force. We love nothing more than working with Chefs on flavour development and creating bespoke creations for their menus using only the very finest ingredients; our Epicurean Range of flavours is 173 and growing! From the much loved favourites to Toasted Sesame ice cream, Crème Fraiche and Horseradish ice cream and our Sour Cherry sorbet – there is a flavour for every palate. When looking redesigning our Retail range, I felt the ice cream fixtures where lacking ‘something new’. We started researching all categories for inspiration of how to give the WOW factor in Retail ice cream, whilst still being mindful of sustainability. The idea of the wooden pot came one evening over a cheeseboard and good bottle of red – the elegance and luxury statement of the wooden Camembert box jumped out at me and we never looked back!”
The moreish and intensely velvety ice cream is encapsulated in a 100% compostable wooden pot; perfect for slicing, stacking, sharing or spooning straight from the pot – guaranteed to be a dinner party centrepiece! The range is listed in 60 stores, selected by Waitrose, and store list available on their website which can be found here.
Get in touch if you are interested in stocking the retail range or equally would like to discuss adding Granny Gothards ice cream to your menu (their Award Winning Vegan range has blown away many a Chef!) – they are a marvellous bunch and love nothing more than tasting/talking all things ice cream with customers!
