Iconic Yorkshire Producers Unite to create Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake Ice Cream

The Wensleydale Creamery is celebrating the start of Summer with the launch of a Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake ice cream, to be sold at the Creamery’s popular Visitor Centre.

The Creamery, based at Hawes in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, has partnered with fellow Wensleydale dairy manufacturer, Brymor Ice Cream, to create a unique flavour of their Real Dairy Ice Cream; Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake.

Inspired by the famous signature dish; Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake, served at The Wensleydale Creamery’s Visitor Centre, the ice cream is made with whole milk from Brymor’s own herd of pedigree Guernsey cows, and double cream, which is combined with Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger cheese and a biscuit crumble. The result; an indulgent creamy delight with the subtle flavour of Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger cheese, and a note of buttery biscuit.

To coincide with the launch, The Wensleydale Creamery has opened a bespoke ice cream shop area at its Visitor Centre, exclusively selling a range of Brymor’s Guernsey ice cream flavours, alongside the Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake ice cream. A tempting Brymor ice cream sundae menu has also been added to the food offer in its Visitor Centre 1897 Coffee Shop & Calvert’s Restaurant.

Sandra Bell, Marketing Manager of The Wensleydale Creamery, said: “Our home-made Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake has always been a hit in our Visitor Centre, here at The Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. Many people request our recipe, and so we thought what better way to embrace the Summer than to create an indulgent ice cream with this flavour.”

“We’re delighted to be linking up with another proud Yorkshire dairy producer, Brymor, to create this unique flavoured ice cream. We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors to The Wensleydale Creamery and delighting them with a real taste of the Yorkshire!”

Nicola Moore, Operations Director of Brymor said: “We are thrilled to be working in partnership with The Wensleydale Creamery on this unique and innovative flavour. Brymor is known for its great taste and choice of flavours, and we are looking forward to helping bring the great taste of Yorkshire Wensleydale & Ginger Cheesecake ice cream to customers at The Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre, and at our Brymor Ice Cream Parlour at High Jervaulx too”.

    Is your ice-cream made with double cream?
    I DON’T want it to be, as it gives me migraine!!
    But ice-cream companies all seem to think everybody wants ice-cream to be made from double cream!
