Soaves Ice Cream
Not open to the public.
Part of Scotland's glad tradition of Italian immigrants setting up family ice cream businesses, the Soave family settled in Coatbridge in Lanarkshire in 1914, running their ice cream business there for the first half of the century. In the early 1950s the present owner's uncle set up a cafÃ© on the site which his nephew would later develop into the plant where Soave's ice cream is made today. Despite the modern equipment, they still use the original family recipe, adding tens of different flavours from Turkish delight to Irn Bru. They have a separate Scottish range of five different flavours, including macaroon, tablet and custard with nutmeg. Soave sell from their own CaffÃ© Soave; to wholesale and retail.
