Great Taste Award Winners!

We are extremely proud to hold 7 Great Taste Award accolades over the last three years, which is a great testament to the superb quality and superior flavour of our luxury ice creams.

“It is fantastic to receive our Great Taste badges of honour which adds so much value to our business in terms of credibility, opening doors to new retailers and increasing brand awareness and sales!  Our whole team are thrilled to have the awards!”

Andrea King, Area Sales Manager, Lakes Ice Cream.


Double Jersey – 2 Star

Judges’ comments: “Beautiful snow white colour. Silky smooth, creamy consistency, not too sweet and real buttery quality. I can’t say much more than this is a shining example.”

Thunder & Lightning – 1 Star

Judges’ comments: “A good combination of dairy-rich ice cream, crunchy cinder toffee and ripples of sauce – we like texture and the cinder toffee has stayed crisp and also nicely chewy.”

Raspberry Pavlova – 1 Star

Judges’ comments: “A good milky ice cream with raspberry freshness rippled through and a smattering of meringue – we like the freshness of the fruit but we especially enjoyed the clean, creamy finish from the actual ice cream.”


Cherry and Mascarpone Gelato – 2 Star

Judges’ comment: “Beautifully rippled ice cream with a bright cherry fruity streak and lots of fruity aromas. The cherries add a burst of fruity sweetness and sourness with a long fruity finish. The fruity pieces are particularly delicious; they are plump, soft, perfectly sized and generously distributed. This ice cream melts in the mouth!”


Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding – 1 Star

Judges’ comments: “A really rich and satisfying combination of creamy ice cream and light date sponge, clever and fun. The fudgy flavours of the date are malty and honest and bring a perfect contrast to the sweetness. Notes of skin, stone and fruit are all evident, delivering a true sticky toffee pudding experience.”

Belgium Biscuit (Biscoff) – 1 Star

Judges’ comments: “A rich and indulgent looking ice cream with a very appealing caramel colour. Truly rich and creamy on the palate with indulgent dairy notes, the sweetness is spot on with hints of cooked caramel and a clear Biscoff taste. The velvety texture melts in the mouth to reveal the toasty, toffee flavours leaving a rather enjoyable biscuity finish. One judge described this as really good fun!”


Kendal Mint Cake – 1 Star

Judges’ comments: “Sophisticated looking and generous chunks of chocolate. The mint really comes through in the aroma and builds up the fresh chocolatey anticipation.”

The Cherry on top!

We are delighted to announce we have won ‘another’ prestigious 2 Star Great Taste Award for our delicious Mascarpone and Cherry Gelato.

In 2019 we were ecstatic to win our first Great Taste Awards for our extremely popular Double Jersey, Thunder & Lightning and Raspberry Pavlova. Winning again this year, given the extremely difficult times we have all been through is simply amazing.

I cannot thank our customers enough for their continued support and I am so proud of our staff, who have gone above and beyond, especially during the time when demand for our products soared.

They worked around the clock, seven days a week to keep our customers supplied with ice cream.

Allergen update

We would like to share with you exactly how we manage allergens on-site here at English Lakes Ice Cream, by giving you an allergen update.

First things first; we work with six allergens on site: milk (butter, cream and milk), nuts, oats, soya (found in our chocolate sauces), wheat (contained in our Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding crumb and Speculoos) and meringue (egg).

Apart from our sorbets, milk and its derivatives are in all of our products and a full and thorough clean is carried out before we pack our sorbet.

Nuts, oats and meringue are kept in colour coded bins with their own coded scoops and when we use one of these in our ice cream, we try to ensure this is the last product of the day. This way we can have a full clean down afterwards (instead of the rinse through we would do during the course of the day) to minimise the risk of cross contamination.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee any cross-contamination however, we do everything we possibly can to minimise any risk!
