‘From the Royal Palaces to simply sitting by the sea, our ice cream is perfect for any occasion’ – and we’re not kidding!
Over the last 5 years we’re incredibly proud to have been working with the Royal Collection to create a bespoke ice cream scoop. Windsor Castle’s superior dairy ice cream range is available exclusively at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Farm Shop and of course, Windsor Castle itself. With a year full of royal weddings, we’re very proud to have seen royal guests with a scoop of ice cream made on our very own farm in the Cotswolds.
About Windsor Castle Dairy Ice Cream
We make the Windsor Castle ice cream here on the farm using milk from the Royal Jersey Herd. The herd, who roam free in the Great Windsor Park, get milked using a modern milking system which allows the cows the freedom to chose when to be milked. Our driver then heads up the M4 to collect the milk from Windsor Castle and brings it back to our farm, ready for us to make it into ice cream using our secret Windsor Castle recipe.
The Royal Jersey herd was founded by Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert. The Jersey herd is the oldest of its kind in the country and some of the cattle can be traced back to the Prince Consort’s first cow, Pretty Polly, who arrived on the farm in 1871. The Royal Dairy was originally set up in 1858 to provide the castle household with milk, cream and butter. They now sell produce from the farm in the Windsor farm shop which was set up by Prince Phillip.
Fit for Royalty
We’re not the only ones impressed with this premium scoop, in 2017 Windsor Castle Vanilla won Gold at the Great Taste Awards. To complete the trio, Strawberry Ice Cream and Chocolate Ice Cream, can be purchased from the Windsor Farm shop. Throughout the summer months it is also served scooped onto cones in Windsor Castle and in Buckingham Palace while it is open to the public.
