Our Kings Cross branch opened at the end of May 2016 in the Canal Quarter of the new development, situated in the Midland Goods shed next to Waitrose wine bar.
Our Panama table with its curvy profile came from the bottom of the Panama canal, we subsequently redesigned the seating area to accommodate this rather spontaneous purchase.
All the dairy ice cream is made in small batches, using seasonal fruit prepared daily on the premises. In the summer the mint, rhubarb, apples and honey are all sourced from within a few miles. Blackberries and damsons come from Julie’s home village of Flintham in Nottinghamshire.
Julie decided right at the beginning to only use organic milk, free range eggs, British or fair trade sugar. We use no artificial preservatives and all our tubs are biodegradable and compostable, and we recycle our spoons.
The ice creams all contain egg yolk. The sorbets contain no dairy. All the sorbets and ice creams may contain traces of nuts, as we use the same equipment and although it is cleaned thoroughly between each batch we cannot guarantee a completely nut free product.
Ruby Violet also offers catering for special events and weddings and runs ice cream and sorbet-making classes for adults and children.
