WHAT THE CONNOISSEURS THINK

Our journey has seen us acquire many fruits for our labour, one of them being at the 2017 New Zealand Ice Cream Awards. The Crème de la Crème of two categories, plus multiple golds and silvers. When it comes to flavour, it’s all about keeping it simple and we didn’t have to venture far with the key ingredient produced from Ben and Sarah's very own Jersey Herd. It was our Velluto Blueberry Yoghurt Gelato that stole the judges taste-buds, taking out the Best in Category and Gold for the Gelato category, arguably becoming the best Gelato of the land. We now to date have a total count of 16 medals and hopefully still counting.
