Pembrokeshire Ice Cream: We’ve got it licked!
Pembrokeshire has fields full of cows producing delicious milk and cream, and artisan ice cream makers across the county making you the best ice cream and sorbets Wales has to offer.
Ice cream vans are also dotted up and down the coastline, which means that wherever you are, you’re guaranteed a cone with a view this summer.
Gianni’s, St Davids
Gianni is an Italian ice cream maker in the heart of a dairy countryside. Using local organic milk from Caerfai Farm you can actually buy your ice cream and walk down the road to meet the cows before you’ve had time to finish your cone – its that local.
Jo and Gianni are a husband/wife team offering 100’s of flavours, all well worth trying! Gianni is constantly experimenting, which means the flavours on offer change daily. If you have a favourite then don’t be disappointed, if you let Gianni know what you want he can produce the ice cream of your dreams in 48-hours.
The current best seller is salted caramel and even your pooch has been catered for, with their unique range of dog-friendly ice creams!
Fire and Ice, Narberth
The latest addition to the local herd of ice cream producers is Fire and Ice in Narberth, who started off their range in 2012 with an award winning dairy-free mango sorbet! Using local organic milk and cream from Calon Wen and Daioni they’ve now added ice cream to their luxury creations.
Pop into the shop in Narberth for a taster session before you decide which one is for you. Current favourite is the chocolate and hazelnut.
Cowpots Ice Cream is made on the farm with milk from a local herd of pedigree Jersey cows. The cows graze clover rich pastures overlooking the Carmarthenshire countryside and produce really creamy milk, which is ideal for making luxury dairy ice cream.
You can now visit Cowpots Ice Cream parlour at their farm near Whitland. The flavour currently causing a stir is the caramel honeycomb and the parlour is open Tuesdays – Sundays: 9:30am - 6pm.
Other local ice creams to look out for include Upton Farm’s ‘Pembrokeshire Promise’ and Mary’s Farmhouse ice creams, which are sold through local cafes and ice cream vans up and down the county.
