  • Ruby Violet – Tufnell Park


    We are based on the borders of Tufnell Park and Kentish Town, a little jewel in the heart of Fortess Road, from where we serve our delicious ice cream and sorbet. We take time to create our flavours, for example the toasted coconut is made by cracking then peeling the coconuts, grating, toasting then soaking in the milk and cream for 2 days, straining then churning. All the dairy ice cream is made in small batches, using seasonal fruit prepared daily on the premises. In the summer the mint, rhubarb, apples and honey are all sourced from within a few miles. Blackberries and damsons come from Julie’s home village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire. Julie decided right at the beginning to only use organic milk, free range eggs, British or fair trade sugar. We use no artificial preservatives and all our tubs are biodegradable and compostable, and we recycle our spoons. The ice creams all contain egg yolk. The sorbets contain no dairy. All the sorbets and ice creams may contain traces of nuts, as we use the same equipment and although it is cleaned thoroughly between each batch we cannot guarantee a completely nut free product. We’re always open to suggestions for new flavours and are very willing to experiment, so please contact us with any ideas. Ruby Violet also offers catering for special events and weddings and runs ice cream and so
