Equi’s Ice Cream to represent UK in the European Gelato Final 2017
Equi’s Ice Cream’s Scottish Raspberry Sorbet came out on top in the UK heat of the European Gelato Championship in London this weekend (15th – 18th June).
The Hamilton based ice cream maker was up against strong competition including a top gelato maker from the Gordon Ramsey Group and the acclaimed Snowflake Gelato. With 50% of the result coming from public vote and the rest from a technical jury made up of gelato experts and London food critics.
Equi’s Scottish Raspberry Sorbet was made using fresh Scottish raspberries shipped from Castleton Farm in Aberdeen with a dash of lemon. A unique production method gives the sorbet the super smooth texture Equi’s Ice Cream is known for. The top secret recipe was created by owner David Equi and produced to perfection by gelato chef Kaelin Halcrow.
Equi’s Ice Cream will take on finalists from across Europe at the Gelato Festival European final which takes place at Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence in September.
