The All-Year-Round Ice Cream


Food & Drink

What better way to cool down in the warm weather than with a delicious booze-infused ice cream? Speakeasy, named after the illicit bars and clubs that sold booze during the American Prohibition era, has partnered with the award-winning craft spirit and liqueur producer Ableforth to launch three luxury ice creams.

The Spiced Rum flavour is infused with Ableforth's Rumbullion, which won the Best Spiced Rum accolade at the World Rum Awards. It combines rich spices such as cinnamon, cloves and cardamom with Madagascan vanilla, orange peel and, of course, the finest Caribbean rum. The Cherry Brandy is made with Ableforth's high-quality version of the spirit, with real cherries and French brandy. Finally, the light and refreshing Ramos Gin flavour boasts orange peel, juniper, coriander, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom in the multi-award winning Ableforth's Bathtub Gin. All three off a light flavour of alcohol with the creamy taste of artisan ice cream.

Available through Ocado, in Wholefoods and independent retailers, Speakeasy Ice Cream is and all-year-round treat. Delicious with fruit or over crumbles or pies,, and good enough to eat straight out of the tub. It's also perfect for pairing with festive treats such as Christmas pudding and mince pies.

Is boozy ice cream set to be the next big thing?

The Dairymen report

Forget rum-raisin! When it comes to booze-flavoured ice cream, cheery brandy and gin fizz are where it’s at. So insists Jane Woodhead, co-founder of Speakeasy, the alcoholic ice cream start-up that made its retail debut in November.

Playing it safe is no longer an option. “In terms of flavour trends and what’s on the shelf, the biggest development is with flavour; the more creative the better.” she says.

With premium sales in strong growth, suppliers are increasingly turning to their drinks cabinet for inspiration. “As amazing craft spirits have been hitting the market, so has awareness of new flavour profiles, and we’re seeing a crossover in consumers coming from the craft spirit section to ice cream” Woodhead adds.

Speakeasy launches craft spirit ice cream trio into Ocado


The Grocer

Boozy ice cream brand Speakeasy has launched three ice creams created in partnership with craft spirit brand Ableforth’s into Ocado.

Ramos Gin, Spiced Rum and Cherry Brandy flavours, created with Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin, Rumbullion! and Cherry Brandy respectively, rolled out into the online retailer this week, with abv of 0.8%-0.9% and at an introductory price of £4.99/500ml (rsp: £5.99). It marks the first national retail listing for the Kent-based brand.

Ramos Gin “took inspiration from legendary Ramos Gin Fizz” with “intense citrus flavours” and a “light, refreshing taste” said the brand, while Spiced Rum contained “creamy” Madagascan vanilla, cloves and cardamom. Cherry Brand was “rich and spicy with notes of dark cherries and almond”.

“For us it’s hopefully the first of more listings,” said Speakeasy director Jane Woodhead. “We’re hoping to encourage some of the other multiples to take it so we are talking to many of those. We’ve got a bit of a launch campaign going on Instagram and social, but we need to now start getting the word out and building followers.”

The brand planned to imminently make a “key hire” to lead sales strategy initially across London and the South East, she added. “We’ve also also had a lot of NPD going on in the background and are hoping, realistically, to launch some new flavours in the spring. If we can get them out earlier, then we will.”
