ICE CREAM COMPANY SCOOPS AWARD
A CHESHAM based chocolate and ice cream maker has scooped seven awards at a national ice cream competition.
Auberge du Chocolat, based at Chess Business Park, in Moor Road, won seven awards in the 2016 Ice Cream Alliance National Ice Cream Competition, winning diplomas in the Ice Cream Artisan Class; Dairy Ice Cream Artisan Class; Ice Cream Open Class (for Lavender and Honey ); Chocolate ice cream; and Strawberry Frozen Yoghurt and diplomas of merit for Lemon Sorbet and Toffee Ice cream.
Managing Director Ian Scott said “We are delighted to have received another seven ice cream awards across a range of classes and flavours. We were especially pleased that we have won a diploma of merit in the new class for sorbets.
“Chocolate and ice cream are our twin passions and we want to produce the best so we only use quality ingredients such as full milk and double cream in our ice cream.”
The family-run business has now won more than 80 national and international awards for its chocolate and ice cream products.
The business, which also has a shop in Packhorse Road, Gerrards Cross, wants to celebrate its most recent success with Chesham-based charity The Artic One Foundation.
The charity helps young people who have lost limbs become active and involved in the community through sport, often by providing prosthetic limbs and other equipment and organising sporting events.
On Friday, from 10am to 4pm, Auberge is opening its doors to everyone to come and try ice cream, sorbet and frozen yoghurt and make sundaes.
The event is free but Mr Scott is hoping people will buy lots to take home because the company is donating money from every sale.
Auberge du Chocolat is an artisan family business that was established in 2005 by Anne and Ian Scott, in Gerrards Cross.
Since 2010 all of its production has been at its Chocolat Auberge in Chesham, which is now the centre of the company.
