ICE CREAM TASTERS WANTED

By Kristina Gore

What could be better than relaxing at Bluestone, soaking up the summer sun and indulging in delicious ice cream? How about relaxing at Bluestone, soaking up the summer sun and indulging in delicious FREE ice cream? 

If you’re enjoying a summer break at Bluestone between Friday the 13th and Thursday 19th of July, you really will have the chance to sample free ice cream at our village coffee shop, Ty Coffi! 

That’s because over the last few months, our Food and Beverage Team have been working hard to invent the perfect signature ice cream flavour to commemorate Bluestone’s 10th birthday which occurs later this month. 

Ice Cream

At the beginning of the process every chef at Bluestone, from the Oaktree to the WildWood Cafe was asked to enter up to three unique ice cream flavours which were not only decadently delicious but also represented the Free Range Fun and unique and quirky essence of Bluestone. 

So what flavours did our creative chefs come up with? Flavours ranged from Seaweed and Dark Chocolate, to Pigeon Beak Apple and Crumble, Gin and Cucumber and Merlin’s Crème brûlée. 

The Willy Wonker-style entries were whittled down by our F&B managers (with a little help from Bluestone CEO, William McNamara who would never miss a chance to see his staff shine nor sample their scrumptious work) to the final two flavours that are now left in the competition. 

Ice Cream

The final decision regarding the overall winner will now be handed to our guests.  For one week only, staying guests will be invited to sample both flavours at Ty Coffi, where they’ll make the tough call between “Blue Lagoon Ice Cream”; made from blue curacao syrup, lemonade flavouring with popping candy or sherbet, and “Spiced Plum and Local Honey Crumble Ice Cream”. 

Ice Cream

After sampling each flavour, our guests will vote for their favourite ice cream by placing a coloured counter in a ballet box – either a blue counter for Blue Lagoon or a pink counter for Spiced Plum and Local Honey Crumble, with the winner being determined by the highest number of counters at the end of the week. 

The winning flavour will be lovingly reproduced by our friends at Joe’s Ice Cream and available to purchase at Bluestone as our own bespoke flavour - perfect for our Summer Festival and just what we need during this glorious heatwave!
