At Treleavens ice cream we are known for producing premium ice creams and sorbets with deliciously creamy textures and great flavours. Created with an artisan approach, we are proud to use high quality, local ingredients in our award-winning products and work hard to create great-tasting luxury ice cream for you and your customers to enjoy.
We use the best local ingredients to create our indulgent ice cream which is proudly homemade by passionate, eccentric and experienced people. Just one of the local suppliers we rely on is Trewithen Dairy, an award-winning family of milk suppliers and Cornwall’s largest bottler of milk, processing and delivering delicious milk to us daily. They believe in doing the right thing and working to a simple equation: the happier and healthier the cows, the better the milk. The milk in question comes from farms within a 25-mile radius which all demonstrate a high standard of welfare for their animals, meaning quality and freshness are guaranteed.
Just one of these farms is Trekillick Farm, which started producing milk with a small herd of 60 dairy cows in 1965. The farm is now run by the family’s fourth generation and is home to 300 pedigree Jersey cows who live off the crops that are grown on the 700 acres of arable land they inhabit. We choose to make our authentic ice cream with Trewithen Dairy milk as you can truly taste that it has come from happy, healthy cows living in our own Cornish countryside and being carefully cared for by devoted farmers.
Rodda’s Clotted Cream who have been making this deliciously indulgent ingredient since 1890, so where better for us to source it? Now in the fifth generation of the family business, we truly believe this clotted cream is something special and that is why it is included in every single one of our dairy ice cream recipes. The delicate golden crust forms after being gently baked, allowing the tastiest and richest bits to rise to the top, ready for you to break into the smoothness of the cream below. We believe this mark of quality and family expertise is a key ingredient in creating delicious tasting ice cream.
At Treleavens ice cream we pride ourselves on sourcing the finest Cornish ingredients for our ice cream and using such incredible produce that is available so close to us. Why not do the same and stock our premium ice cream in your restaurant, café, or establishment? We offer more than 50 flavours from classics like Traditional Cornish Clotted Cream Vanilla and Mint Chocolate Chip to the more adventurous but equally delicious Ginger Cinnamon Crunch and Blueberry Yoghurt in four-litre containers. We also have an abundance of sorbets like Rhubarb, Wild Cherry and Cornish Sea Buckthorn plus vegan ice creams like Salted Caramel and Chocolate to cater to all dietary needs. With an array of available formats, including napoli’s for scooping and four and two litre tubs for restaurants, we also offer a smaller number of flavours in 500ml tubs, ideal for shops, delis and supermarkets looking to provide premium Cornish products, or 120ml tubs, perfect for cinemas and theatres with a disposable spoon to eat on the go. By stocking our ice cream, you are not only supporting our business but the local farmers and suppliers that we rely on to make our quality products.
Shopping local is just a bonus to selling our ice cream! Aside from supporting a Cornish business, you would also be offering an award-winning product that is loved by locals and visitors alike. Two of our ice creams are gold award winners at the Taste of the West Awards, a programme that has been supporting the south west food and drinks industry for more than 25 years and has become the most prestigious awards in the region. Several of our inventive and classically creamy flavours have also been proud recipients of the Great Taste Awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food and we are looking forward to entering the competition again this year. There is a reason our homemade ice cream and refreshing sorbets are already stocked in a number of shops and venues all around Cornwall!
With Christmas around the corner, our ice cream could be the addition your seasonal menu is asking for; just because the sun disappears this doesn’t mean that ice cream needs to as well. Our luxury ice cream is perfect as a standalone post-dinner treat or as an accompaniment to a steaming pudding on your dessert menu. Let the taste of summer linger on your palate with zesty lemon or strawberries and cream or pick flavours like rhubarb crumble and clotted cream to keep your seasonal menu up to date. We even offer individual disposable tubs of ice creams for children’s menus. After some inspiration? Serve our tart yet deliciously sweet Raspberry Pavlova Ice Cream in your Eton mess drizzled with winter berries or let a scoop or two of our luxury Brandy Custard ice cream melt alongside your hot Christmas pudding.
If you want a truly unique ice cream, get in touch with us about creating a bespoke flavour for your menu or venue; our ice cream tester spends most days in the development kitchen so we are always experimenting and pride ourselves on being innovative and imaginative. We have also worked with some of the region’s best chefs to adapt classic flavours as well as create completely original ideas. If you have a specific flavour in mind, we would love to bring your vision to life – the bolder, the better.
Whether you are after the perfect accompaniment for your new seasonal menu, a special flavour to collaborate on, or simply want to stock the classics, Treleavens ice cream has everything you could ask for in an authentically Cornish, luxury dessert. Get in touch with us today to arrange a tasting and we would be delighted to discuss stocking our handmade ice cream in your establishment.
