As temperature continue to rise two Yorkshire producers have come up with an adults only ice cream to cool us down.

Artisan ice cream producer Yummy Yorkshire has joined forces with renowned Yorkshire gin producer Masons to create a new ice cream flavour combination, Gin & Orange Ripple.

After tasting Masons Gin, which is traditionally served with a slice of orange, Jeremy Holmes, founder of Yummy Yorkshire, approached the craft gin distiller to create a limited edition ice cream which combines the brand heritage of Masons with Yummy Yorkshire’s reputation for producing outstanding ice cream.

The gin and orange ice cream is made by combining the perfectly balanced gin with a pure, unadulterated natural ice cream base, allowing the subtle gin flavours to shine through, the base is then swirled with a luxurious orange marmalade, interspersed with fresh orange zest to create the perfect refresher for summer dinner parties and grown-up picnics.

Multi-award winning Yummy Yorkshire was founded by third generation dairy farmers Jeremy and Louise Holmes, who have been blending exciting flavour combinations for nearly a decade, working with some of Yorkshire’s finest and most respected artisan food producers including Mercers, Lottie Shaw’s and Puckett’s Pickles. This latest partnership with Masons gin is Yummy Yorkshire’s first dip into capturing gin’s seductive botanical flavours within a tasty, creamy treat.

Jeremy Holmes, founder of Yummy Yorkshire commented on this latest link-up: “We’re so excited to be teaming up with Masons Gin on this unique new concept. Yorkshire has some of the finest producers in the country, and we’re always on the look out for amazing artisan producers we can collaborate with. The unique quality of Masons Yorkshire Dry Gin makes it a pleasure to combine with our award winning ice cream. We’re looking forward to treating our customers to this true taste of British Summertime.”

Karl Mason of Masons Gin commented: “With their award winning products and adventurous flavours, we knew Yummy Yorkshire would take care of the delicate flavours and heritage of our brand when developing this new product. We’re delighted with the outcome.”

The new Gin & Orange Ripple Ice Cream will be available from local delis, farm shops and reputable food outlets across Yorkshire, including Fodder in Harrogate. As our delicious products are stocked in a wide range of outlets prices can vary. The ice cream will be sold in a 500ml deli tub and 4.5 litre catering tubs for wholesale customers.
