Premium ice-cream and gelato manufacturer Gelista has announced the much-anticipated summer 2016 new flavour release in its highly successful 570ml consumer jar range. The two new flavours are “Almond Milk” and “Coconut with Raspberry Swirl”.
The addition of the two new flavours balances and expands the existing range of six to eight flavours; from five dairy and one non-dairy option to five and three respectively.
“Our flavours are always carefully selected and developed”, says Peter Cox, Managing Director of Gelista. “We don’t follow fads or develop gimmick flavours. We research emerging trends in the premium gourmet market and develop flavour profiles that are clean, authentic and exceptional.”
Gelista is well known for taking great care in selecting the best ingredient they can identify. Their mantra is to find ingredients with “Terroir” – a sense of place and provenance that translates into a quality that is distinctive and discernible to taste. These ingredients converted into premium ice-cream and gelati using artisan crafting techniques that delivers a taste and texture that is “uniquely Gelista”.
“A lot of work goes into flavour development”, says Peter Cox. “We track trends in London, Milan and New York as we research a development slate. This gives us insights that allow us to match flavours based on the best of what’s locally available or anticipate emerging trends putting us ahead of the game. Then we have internal taste panels evaluate a large number of new flavour formulations. It is only the very best formulations that end up with the Gelista name on them!”
This almond milk product has a sweet and subtle almond flavour that is neutral enough for it to become an accompaniment to gourmet deserts; the new non-dairy substitute for traditional vanilla bean ice-cream and gelati.
The “Coconut with Raspberry Swirl” product builds on the huge success of the plain coconut product included in the range originally launched last year. The new product delights the senses with the creamy texture of the existing coconut plus the sweet aroma of the raspberry, the aesthetically beautiful red swirl in the pure white, and a flavour that seduces.
The new flavours are available through Gelista stockists across the country.
