...We take the very finest and freshest ingredients in our Flavour Lab. Some sourced locally – milk and cream from Bruton Dairy in Somerset. Others sourced for their intensity of flavour – lemons grown under the Sicilian sun, vanilla from Madagascar. Each day we make our gelato fresh, churning it slowly – very, very slowly – in the traditional Italian way. It’s what gives our gelato its distinctive smooth, silky texture and intense, rich flavour. So take your time over your gelato. We certainly do.

...GELATO TYPICALLY HAS 50% LESS FAT THAN TRADITIONAL ICE CREAM, BUT IT TASTES MUCH CREAMIER. THE CREAMY TEXTURE COMES FROM THE WAY IT’S MADE, SLOW CHURNING INSTEAD OF RAPID BEATING. LOW FAT, RICH, CREAMY TEXTURE, INTENSE FLAVOUR – SO YOU CAN EAT TWICE AS MUCH.

...AND ALL THE YEAR ROUND IN FACT. GELATO IS SERVED AT A HIGHER TEMPERATURE THAN ICE-CREAM, AROUND 10-15% HIGHER, TO BE PRECISE. IT MELTS QUICKLY ON YOUR TONGUE TO RELEASE SCOOP LOADS MORE FLAVOUR.

...For more than a century our family has been making original artisan gelato in the UK. In the rain, the snow, through the good times and bad, Forte family gelato parlours were a haven of warmth and welcome, camaraderie and community, somewhere to find friendship, a little moment of joy, a little moment of pure delight.

At Swoon we intend to sustain that tradition. We are proud of the dedication of our ancestors who cared about quality and cared about their customers.
