Ice cream brand Jude’s has collaborated with gin maker Sipsmith on the development of a limited-edition gin and tonic-flavoured ice cream.
Available in 120ml pots, the new ice cream will launch tomorrow in Selfridges with a recommended retail price of £2.95, and then with online supermarket Ocado from the beginning of June. The new product balances the botanicals of Sipsmith London dry gin with Jude’s creamy crème anglaise base mix, together with a splash of tonic water and lemon.
Sipsmith co-founder Sam Galsworthy said: “This is all about celebrating where summer meets gin. Our collaboration with Jude’s is the perfect marriage of two Great British summertime institutions: ice cream – and the gin and tonic.
“We’re big fans of Jude’s. Both our London distillery and their dairy champion crafting timeless classics of quality and substance, which are made to be savoured.”
Jude’s founder Theo Mezger added: “We are constantly on the look out for new sources of inspiration and this one came in a clinking glass. Partnering with the team at the Sipsmith Distillery has challenged us to do something a little bit different, which we hope will go down well with lovers of Sipsmith and Jude’s alike.”
