To mark the opening of Baboo Gelato’s latest ice cream kiosk in Lyme Regis, owners Annie and Sam Hanbury have created a new sorbet dedicated to the seaside town – ‘The Lyme Sorbet.’
‘The Lyme Sorbet’ is now available from the new kiosk on Marine Parade, opposite the world-famous Cobb. As it is a sorbet, and so dairy-free, it can be enjoyed by everyone.
With flavour being at the heart of Baboo’s success, Annie has spent months experimenting to come up with a fitting celebration of Lyme Regis. Finally, she has found a local source for Brazilian limes, that have a fantastic, deep, aromatic flavour.
Annie Hanbury says, “We are so excited to launch our new and exclusive ‘Lyme Sorbet’ at our kiosk along the seafront for everyone to enjoy. It has a clean and refreshing taste, and will help keep people cool during what we hope will be a great summer. We also have take-home containers that can be filled in the kiosk with the flavours of your choice. So why not take some of the lime sorbet home: it should be the base of many a delicious summer cocktail.”
At the launch event for the new kiosk at the end of May, a barman will be there to show you how it’s done, by creating a frozen ‘Lyme Vodka Crush’ cocktail. It will include one scoop of ‘The Lyme Sorbet’, 50ml of vodka and 4 mint leaves – perfect for the summer months.
The second kiosk opened a month ago, and has surprised Annie and Sam with how quickly it has gained a reputation in Lyme. We hear more and more people say, ‘Let’s go to Baboo’ says Sam. They are now busy expanding their local team in preparation for the summer season.
The Lyme Regis kiosk opening marks an exciting time for Baboo Gelato and completes what has been a whirlwind of a year. They won the coveted Champion Ice Cream & Sorbet from Taste of the West, and Blackmore Vale Magazine’s Best Dairy Producer as well as attracting a loyal following from local chefs; like River Cottage’s Canteen in Axminster, and The Millside in Lyme Regis.
Annie continues, “We really hope the people of Lyme Regis will come & try the sorbet out for themselves, and enjoy eating it as much as we have making it!”
