Speakeasy Ice Creams presents indulgent ice creams, infused with alcohol from award-winning brands such as Ableforth’s. These ice creams provide the perfect accompaniment to desserts this Christmas and offer a twist on the traditional hostess gift for all those Christmas parties. A featured Christmas product on Ocado, Speakeasy Ice Creams can also be found in Wholefoods and in independent food stores across the UK.
These truly innovative ice creams, indulgently creamy and delicately flavourful, have inspired delicious dessert creations from Speakeasy customers – Mince pies and Spiced Rum, Christmas pudding and Cherry Brandy anyone? Proving to be a firm favourite for Christmas.
With three flavours (and more launching later in 2018) there’s an ice cream for all occasions:
Spiced Rum – Ableforth’s Rumbullion! Winner of ‘Best Spiced Rum’ at the World Rum Awards is a blend of the finest Caribbean rum, Madagascan vanilla, zesty orange peel and finished with a handful of cinnamon, cloves and a hint of cardamom. The inspired pairing of this excellent spiced rum, with rich and creamy Speakeasy ice cream, results in an original flavour combination and a delicately spiced and enticing ice cream.
Cherry Brandy – Unlike many cherry brandies, Ableforth’s own take on this classic is made with real cherries and the finest French brandy. The result is rich and spicy with notes of dark cherries and almond. With this sublime combination at its core, this exceptional ice cream is big on flavour, and perfectly balanced.
Ramos Gin – The centrepiece of this flavour is the multi-award winning Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin which features botanicals including orange peel, juniper, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. Taking its inspiration from the legendary Ramos Gin Fizz, Bathtub Gin is coupled with intense citrus flavours to create a truly distinctive ice cream, having a rich creamy texture and yet delivering a light and refreshing taste.
Founder of Speakeasy Ice Cream Jane Woodhead comments: “We launched our first range, the Ableforth’s Collection, last November into Ocado and it proved an immediate hit. The blend of spices and flavours across our range of ice creams comes directly from the craft spirit itself and are perfectly balanced for pairing with Christmas classics to give them a modern twist. We are always excited to see the wide range of inspired pairings our customers create and are looking forward to introducing our new flavours and partners in time for the festive season.”
The family-run business, which launched in 2017, has taken its inspiration from the Speakeasy hideaways of the prohibition era with the famous ‘blind tiger’ as its emblem. The ice creams reflect the style of prohibition times, indulgence but with a hidden secret, a touch of alcohol.
