STATEMENT

SPRING 2020

Due to commercial viability we suspended all gelato production in Spring 2020 and due to 2020 being the year it has been, we will see what happens in 2021.

Inspired by Italy

CRAFTED in the COTSWOLDS

icesmith gelato is made using traditional artisanal techniques learned in Italy and crafted with high-quality all-natural ingredients, resulting in an intensely flavoured delicious gelato.

1991

First ice cream stall!

Most small children love ice cream, and I was no different! I was perhaps a touch more enterprising than your average six-year-old, though, and set up my very first ice cream stand, offering vanilla, strawberry, pistachio, and blueberry ice creams. Blueberry was the premium flavour at 25 pence per scoop!

1992 - 2003

Growing Up!

...sort of!

2009

first ice cream maker

I finally bought my first ice cream maker. After a bit of practice with the basics I started playing around with more unusual flavour creations - French Toast being the biggest hit!

2017

1st Pop up

I held a popup event at Tokes, a local deli in Chipping Campden, to test my ice cream creations with the locals.

Over 200 people sampled gelatos, sorbettos, and tiny ice cream sandwiches made with homemade chocolate biscuits.

2018

Gelato University

Following the excellent feedback from tastings, I enrolled at Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna and undertook intense gelato training and a brief internship to learn the craft of Italian gelato before returning home to conduct an initial launch of icesmith.

Award-Winners

Out of 12800 food products entered into the 2019 Great Taste Awards, only 20 of these won 3 stars, the highest accolade, for ice cream/gelato and our Baked Apple and Black Garlic were two of them!

2020

Not just for Summer

At icesmith we believe that gelato should be enjoyed year-round, rain or shine, from Chocolate, Sea Salt & Bay to Strawberry Prosecco, Sea Buckthorn and even Christmas Tree, our flavours are hand-crafted in small batches to ensure the most intense taste

However, due to commercial viability we suspended production in the Spring and due to 2020 being the year it has been, we will see what happens in 2021.
