I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream!

The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Certificated Site at Rowlestone Court Farm has picked up several Gold Stars for its delicious ice creams and sorbets at the Great Taste Awards this summer.

Four products entered by Rowlestone Farmhouse Ice Cream earned a Gold Star in their category: Mascarpone and Caramel Iced Pecan Nut, Malt Whiskey and Orange Marmalade, and Honeycomb ice creams and Raspberry sorbet.

The Great Taste Awards attract over 4500 entries each year and are run by the Guild of Fine Foods, which launched the awards in 1993.

Mark Williams, of Rowlestone Farmhouse Ice Cream, says, “We’re chuffed to bits as it’s our first attempt at this most prestigious of food competitions and the business is still only some three and half years old.”

Between eight and sixteen judges taste each product before a star is awarded. The judges include buyers, retailers, chefs and food writers, who blind taste each entry.
