Sydney Royal winning Gelato and Sorbet

We are very proud to announce that we have won at the Sydney Royal Cheese and Dairy competition in 2021. We entered one sorbet and five gelato flavours and each of them received a prize.

We’re especially humbled that, in conjunction with the Queensland Royal Food & Wine Show,\over the past seven years, we’ve won 38 awards from the 40 flavours we’ve submitted – 7 Gold medals (including 4 Champion Award trophies); 17 Silver medals; and 14 Bronze medals. It’s especially meaningful to have won these last six awards in our home city of Sydney.

How the competition works:

The awards are broken down into different categories of cheese and dairy. Within each category, each item is given a score out of 20. Those scoring above 18 points earn Gold; 16-18 earn silver; 15-16 earn bronze. Below 15 points, no award is attributed

What we won this year:

  • GOLD and AWARD CHAMPION for our PISTACCHIO SICILIANO GELATO made with Bronte pistacchios from Sicily
  • SILVER for PANNA COTTA FICHI CRUMBLE GELATO made with fresh figs and our homemade panna cotta.
  • SILVER for MANGO PASSION FRUIT SORBETTO made with Australian mango and vine ripened passion fruit
  • SILVER for LYCHEE LAMPONE GELATO made with our signature lychee gelato flavoured with raspberries
  • SILVER for CIOCCOLATO BELGA GELATO made with Belgium chocolate
  • BRONZE for PASSION FRUIT and GANACHE GELATO made with vine ripened passion fruit and our home made ganache

Although we work long and hard to create the best gelato and sorbet for our customers, it is an exceptional honour to have our work recognised by the esteemed judges at Royal Sydney. As first time participants, we are thrilled with the results and look forward to entering again in the future.

In a competitive marketplace, it is gratifying to know that our passion and commitment to using the best quality ingredients sourced locally and from around the world, actually makes a difference. The way we create our gelato is very artisanal. It’s certainly more time consuming and labour intensive than the standard gelato offering, so we are especially grateful to receive these awards as a mark of excellence amongst our peers.

Finally, we’d like to thank you, our beautiful customers for your never-ending feedback, support and loyalty. We couldn’t continue to do what we love without you and that is our truest reward.
