THE new anticipated

TUB RANGE

Whole organic blueberries churned with Organic Jersey milk bursts with fruity flavour as a dynamic tang kicks in.

The name says it all, 75% whole Organic Jersey milk with a butterscotch caramel creates a rich and creamy experience.

A creamy base lays the foundations for a sweet ginger bite, followed by a subtle hint of spice that shines through.

A french vanilla influence churned with creamery Organic Jersey milk is the perfect combo for that New Zealand classic.

OUR UNIQUE difference

We think we are unique, because we see the process through from milk collected from the cow, through till when the scoop hits the cone. We also think we are unique because we use the best whole milk , then we churn it with whole fruit and craft this into Gelato, not as common as ice cream around these neck of the woods, but we are proud to be different, or what we say - unique.

WE HAVE THE
MILK SOURCE Direct FROM THe vosper family's ORGANIC A2 JERSEY HERD & USE THEIR FRESH WHOLE MILK.

WE HAVE THE
CREAMERY WHERE WE HAND CRAFT
& BATCH MAKE OUR PRODUCT, and the paRlour to serve direct.

WE HAVE THE
ETHICAL & AWARD WINNING FLAVOUR  THAT MAKES US THE BETTER CHOICE.

WHAT THE CONNOISSEURS THINK

Our journey has seen us acquire many fruits for our labour. The Crème de la Crème of two categories, plus multiple golds and silvers from the New Zealand Ice Cream Awards. When it comes to flavour, it’s all about keeping it simple and we didn’t have to venture far with the key ingredient being the milk. It was our Velluto Blueberry Gelato that stole the judges taste-buds, taking out the Best in Category and Gold, arguably becoming the best Gelato of the land for the year. We now to date have a total of 20 medals and hopefully still counting.
