A deliciously decadent collaboration

Lakes and Hawkshead Ice Cream Flavours

Hawkshead Relish and Kendal’s English Lakes Ice Cream have joined forces to create two deliciously decadent ice cream flavours just in time for Summer.

The new products were launched at the Farm Shop and Deli Show, Birmingham, in April, the two new luxurious flavours are: Seville Orange Marmalade and Rhubarb & Ginger Crumble.

Both flavours are available to hospitality, catering and leisure customers in either four litre packs or Napoli catering packs and one litre retail packs will be available shortly in Booths stores throughout the country.

These two innovative multi-award-winning Lake District food producers had been meaning to collaborate for quite a while, however, the pandemic got in the way.

After an initial conversation between Jonathan Robb MD of Hawkshead Relish and James Stephens MD of English Lakes Ice Cream, at the Lakes Hospitality Show in 2022, the two businesses got the ball rolling and set about working their magic.

After numerous taste tests between the two teams, they decided to work with Rhubarb & Ginger Jam, a sweet and sticky jam made with locally sourced rhubarb and a touch of heat from fresh ginger and Seville Orange Marmalade, which is bursting with simple citrus flavours, made in the traditional way using only the finest Seville oranges.

They were then paired with simple natural ingredients by English Lakes Ice Cream’s development team, to create two luxurious dairy ice creams made from local fresh organic milk and cream, sourced from Red Tractor assured Morphet Farms, Swarthmoor, Ulverston.

English Lakes Ice Cream MD James Stephens commented: “We’re always looking to add to the range of flavours  we offer, and we’ve wanted to collaborate with Hawkshead Relish for a while. The opportunity presented itself and we then got our heads together to incorporate their products with ours to create several distinctive flavours, that would not only help promote what both companies are doing in their respective fields, but also the quality of the produce being created across the county.”

Maria Whitehead co-owner of Hawkshead Relish commented: “James and I have a similar approach to business, so it seemed natural for us to look at how we might work together. When we began shaping ideas it didn’t take us long to develop our thoughts into two perfectly complimentary flavour profiles.

There’s no doubt that sweet and sticky rhubarb with a little added heat from fresh ginger and the zesty citrus flavours of Seville oranges sit perfectly mixed through the rich creamy ice creams English Lakes produce. As a result of this successful collaboration we are now looking at further opportunities to work together and develop even more tantalising ice cream flavour combinations in the coming months.”
