Purbeck Ice Cream has been gathering awards over the past 30 years recognizing achievements judged on taste, flavour, quality, and innovation.
Great Taste and Taste of the West Awards abound and we have been awarded the accolade of Great Taste Producer for consistently producing award winning Ice Cream.
2022 has already proved to be successful with Gold Taste of the West awards for Chrimbo Pud and Serious Chocolate and Silver Taste of the West awards for Clotted Cream and Berries & Clotted Cream. We have also been awarded a Silver from the Farm Shop and Deli Award for our Lovely Lime & Coconut and Bronze for our Salted Caramel.
In 2021 we have been awarded a Great Taste 3 stars for Sweet Fennel and a Great Taste 1 star for Champagne and Strawberry, Gold Taste of the West awards for Raspberry Sorbet, Chocolate Orange Ice Cream and our Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream. We also won a Silver Taste of the West award for our Rum & Raisin ice cream.
We scooped another Great Taste 1-Gold Star award in 2020 for the gorgeous Rhubarb & Rosehip Ripple Ice Cream and Pink Grapefruit Sorbet, joining our many other award-winning flavours to indulge in.
We were also awarded Gold Taste of the West Awards for Coconut Sorbet and Pink Grapefruit Sorbet, Silver for Coconut Cream and Very Cherry and Commended for our Vegan Rhubarb and Rosehip
