Argyll is full of flavour and capturing that is what we want to do with our unique Highland Fold Ice Cream; we want to share the freshness and wildness of this amazing place and create tastes to compliment the wonderful feelings, sounds, smells and views of our spectacular surroundings.
Our ice cream is designed to make our customers smile. We like to know where our ingredients come from and we are privileged to have artisan producers on our doorstep creating exciting quality products right here in Argyll. This means we can support local businesses at the same time as knowing we are using the very best of ingredients. Our syrups are made especially for us by Paradise Kitchen on the Isle of Seil – established artisan makers of preserves; our chocolate comes from the (amazing) Oban Chocolate Company made in their little chocolate factory; our crumb sprinkles are from the most delicious organic biscuits produced by The Island Bakery on the Isle of Mull, our traditional tablet chips (to die for) are made using tablet from The Scottish Tablet Company in Campbelton who have a wonderful ancient family recipe. For our special Highland Welcome sauce, we use Jura Whisky from the Isle of Jura.
We don’t have to look far to find fantastic Argyll flavours. As well as food provenance, we are interested in looking after our environment and contributing to our local economy by sourcing our ingredients as close to home as we can to keep road-miles down and support local business. We don’t like waste, so all of our packaging is recycled and compostable and we offer incentives at events for returned tubs and spoons so we can take them home with us to turn into compost to put back on the fields, to grow better grass for our cows so that we can make even more delicious ice cream. Our gorgeous vending trailer is an upcycled horse trailer, adapted for carrying and selling ice cream and powered by a bank of rechargeable batteries designed especially for us by Scoraig Wind Electric. We care about Argyll, we care about our customers and we care about making the best ice cream we possibly can.
And most of all, we care about our cows! ?
