The Killinchy Gold story began years ago on a small South Island farm. On that farm there lived two people with a dream - a dream of bringing back traditional values to ice cream making. After all, the first ice cream made in New Zealand was made slowly by hand, in small batches, with all natural ingredients.
With the rise of mechanical production, however, while quantity could be vastly expanded, quality often suffered as a result. They believed that making ice cream the hard way, with as few short cuts as possible, would result in a better ice cream. Launched with typically little Southern fanfare and a small range of flavours, 'Killinchy Gold' was nonetheless an overnight success. Production moved to Emerald Foods and the Killinchy commitment to premium ingredients, high quality standards and pride in doing things well were respected and maintained.
So as you can see, Killinchy Gold really has made it the hard way! Yet all this hard work has paid off. From its modest beginnings, it has grown to be something of an icon in the New Zealand market. With a loyal following and an ever expanding range of flavours, Killinchy Gold still stands by the values of the finest quality ingredients, and as few shortcuts as possible.
We are sure that, while it's not the easiest ice cream in the world to make, it’s always very easy to enjoy.
