Taywell is owned by Alastair Jessel. The company aims to create high quality products, source ingredients locally where possible, behave ethically at all times, constantly innovate and always practise and consider sustainability issues.
The thought behind the creation of Taywell in August 2006 was to utilise surplus fruit from his farm and turn it into something special. Passionate about ice cream, he was determined that his ice creams and sorbets should not contain any artificial additives, colours, stabilisers or bulking agents and the flavours were to be produced to their best taste rather than to a particular price.
Taywell is an unusual company, unlike any other ice cream business. Their aim is not to offer the same twelve flavours as everyone else, nor to boast of a recipe invented by our great Auntie Bess, nor to confound you with ‘secret ingredients’ and fancy tubs laced with amazing hieroglyphics that tell you nothing.
They aim to thrill the connoisseur, to invent awesome flavours, to boldly go where no ice cream business has gone before. Taywell wants to surprise, to tantalise, to hook you on delectable recipes and make you never eat another non-dairy ice cream again.
The company is in the ‘treats’ market and they want you to taste and enjoy your favourite flavours and go to heaven and back. Being addicted to their ice cream is no sin, just a pleasure, but they also want you understand that they also care about what is in the products and more importantly, what is left out.
Sitting here in The Garden of England, Taywell has access to the finest fruit in the country and for those that have a gluten, egg, soya or dairy intolerance, their sorbets contain the finest ingredients found in any tub in the UK and they are proud to support English fruit farmers by promoting what they have to offer.
