Keeping it Fresh
As ice cream evolved you no longer need to choose a pre-made flavor from a frozen container. At 196below, we transform natural and locally sourced ingredients into creative, delicious scoops of ice cream before your very eyes. Watch as your hand-selected flavors are instantly made to order where each serving will provide the freshest and smoothest ice-cream humanly possible. We use only the freshest eggs, milk, cream and sugar to form our base. Our sorbets are vegan and dairy free friendly.

Our Safety Guarantee

Our staff members are specially trained to handle liquid nitrogen – a non-toxic, non-flammable substance which will be completely evaporated by the time it reaches you, leaving behind only the creamiest ice-cream that your palate could’ve tasted.  Due to possible cross contamination when supplying you with our ice cream, allergens maybe present. Please consult us before purchasing.
