We are a family run business located in the picturesque harbour village of Portsoy in Aberdeenshire on the Moray Firth, Scotland and have a smaller outlet in Turriff. Alex and staff strive to create an exciting range of ice creams and sorbets which are all made in our Portsoy shop using the finest, and when possible, local ingredients. Over the years we have won numerous awards for our ice creams and sorbets at the National Ice Cream Competition and are preferred suppliers of Fasque House, a beautiful wedding venue.

Whilst staying in Portsoy on holiday we tried the ice cream. Amongst the best I have ever had. Lovely flavour, smooth texture and generous scoops. Thoroughly enjoyed and hope to revisit before the end of our holidays.

I am incredibly sorry and disappointed to hear that this is the experience you had last weekend and thank you for bringing it to our attention. It appears there were issues with some staff last weekend and it is something I intend to address swiftly.
