Bermuda Made Ice Cream On Sale At Dockyard

November 8, 2016

Something new to “tickle the taste buds” has arrived at the Royal Naval Dockyard, with Bermuda-made and themed ice cream from Alex & Pete’s Bermuda Artisan Ice Cream, which has purchased the BermyBerry yogurt company, now available alongside frozen yogurt.

Owner Peter Jovetic said, “The rebranding and renovating has already started and we will be ready for the 2017 season. We will also be showcasing how the ice cream is made for the tourists to watch as well as hosting parties and corporate events.”

“My son, Alex, and I have been making ice cream for many years and decided to make it for the Bermuda market as there was a void in that area.

“The goal was to create fun flavours including old Bermuda favourites like Pineapple Sherbet and Chocolate Ripple and also create a Bermuda Rum series for adults. The ice cream is made naturally with the highest quality ingredients.

“Weekly cruise ships and next year’s America’s Cup make Dockyard an exciting place to be.”

As well as selling artisan ice cream, frozen yogurt, soft serve, ice cream sandwiches, milk shakes and a variety of coffee are also on the menu.

“The ice creams, sorbets and yogurts are all hand-crafted in Bermuda and made in our kitchens in St. George’s. I create flavours and then test them in small quantities,” added Mr Jovetic.

“We have two large Carpigiani machines that slow churn each batch for maximum texture and flavour. Inclusions such as the brownies and sea salt caramel are also made in our kitchens in St. George’s.”

WEDCo’s Business Development Manager, Joanna Cranfield, said, “It’s really good to see a locally owned business that is making products locally expand into Dockyard.

“We recently saw Salt Spray Soap expanding and opening in The Mall and we hope to see even more local business setting up here.”

  1. Truth is killin' me... says:

    Which stores sell your pineapple sherbert and chocolate ripple? Lindo’s or Marketplace?

  2. I heart 441 says:

    Best tasting ice cream in Bermuda. Their brand is better then all international and other Bermudian ice creams on the island.

      Hahaha no way…ain’t nothing gonna ever gonna top Simmons pineapple sherbet and Bermuda creamery sherbets/ice creams!

      • I heart 441 says:

        Sherberts and Ice cream to me are two different taste. But yes, Simmons sherbert was/is king on the Rock!

      I hope you don’t mind me pegging my comment on to yours but what I want to ask is pertinent to what you say .
      As someone who likes a little ice cream treat now and again why is this stuff so expensive ?
      I would consider it to go head to head with that very popular brand made in New York with the name that conjures up Scandinavian images. That stuff is in my opinion already way overpriced .
      Does that manufacturer and its agent have their retail Bermuda price point so perfectly correct that an item made in the US and then under refrigeration freighted to the island and duty paid end up on the shelves locally with the almost same cost as this locally made product ?
      I’m sure that ice cream connoisseurs will poo poo the thought but the Market Place’s ‘home brand’ offers 5x’s the quantity at a lower price !
      Sure , it’s not the same quality as the famous NY designer brand name but for someone looking for a cold , creamy treat once in a while in this economy what savvy shopper is going to shell out 5x’s more ?

      Not that I direct this comment at you , as they say .. just asking’

      I know it’s/ a matter of taste, but Talenti is by far the best gelato. How the store has better prices than the last one there.

  4. Frank says:

    Congratulations to the both of you!

  5. Just wondering says:

    Just eat the Rum Raisin – just do it!!!

  6. T says:

    Alex & Pete’s vs Ben & Jerry’s hmmmm……..vs Simmons’. Looking forward to it. Any opportunities to participate in taste testing?! Would be fun!!!

    I am excited to see new local businesses expand. I wish this company much success.

    When I enquired about opening up a new local business in Dockyard, I was told that I would not be allowed to compete with existing businesses that have been there for years and that the Board would automatically deny my application.

    So, how is it that a yogurt shop converted ice cream shop have been allowed to open up which creates direct competition to the ice cream shop that has had a stable presence in the mall for many many years?

    Something sounds fishy with the Board up there in Dockyard! After the AC, will there be the same demand for space in Dockyard and will the Board be able to be so subjectively picky?
