13 May Jock’s Ice Cream & Sorbet – Broadsheet
Jock’s Ice Cream & Sorbet opened in 2001 and owner Jock Main’s dedication to the integrity of his product has remained consistent. Ask anyone about Jock’s and they’ll tell you he’s unique and keeps it real, particularly his ice creams and sorbets.
What’s special about Jock’s ice cream is the quality and ingredients. The owner enthuses it’s real ice cream for the start and it’s made from scratch. Double pasteurising full-cream milk is part of his process for making his much-loved ice cream and serving scoops and small tubs.
Favourite flavours for the crowds who frequent Jock’s are Hokey Pokey and Chocolate, in any form. Main makes a rich, dark XXX chocolate, a chocolate sorbet and a chocolate ice cream, which all sail out the door on sunny days.
“The hardest part of this job is the weather,” Main explains. “If it was sunny all the time it would be an easy job, but you get sun for two days and then a week of rain…it’s the most frustrating thing because you can’t control it.”
Go rain, hail or shine, you will fine cool, sweet ice cream cones regardless.
