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.
