From August to October, Gelupo will collaborate with seven of Soho’s finest restaurants to launch a menu of exclusive gelatos inspired by flavours around the world. Each chef involved in the unique initiative has developed and supplied Gelupo with a recipe, that showcases hero flavours and ingredients commonly found on their own menus.


Launching in August, this cultural journey will start off in the sweltering Southern Hemisphere with Neil Rankin from Temper designing his very own “helado” in the form of a Smokey Margarita sorbet. His flavour personifies South America and Latino flavours with Lime, Mezcal with a sprinkling of Habanero Salt. The second flavour form  will take us to the Central Pacific all the way to the rugged volcanic island of Hawaii with Island Poké who made a sweet and fiery hit of Pineapple and Chilli.


With the hazy summer coming to an end, September will see Tomer Amedi from the Palomar bringing us a savory-sweet flavour explosion of traditional Tahini ice cream with lashings of date honey, toasted pistachios, and a rose petal kadaif. Tahini isn’t just for falafel!  Travelling from Middle East to Europe, Blanchette's William Alexander brings us a bit of the “belle vie” with a delicious and seasonal combination of Strawberries and Beaujolais wine. The sweetness of the strawberries and depth of the wine flavour make for a really interesting juxtaposition.


Into October we travel over to Judy Joo from Jinjuu taking us to Korea with her own unique twist on a traditional drink - Matcha with a sweet red bean swirl and crunchy white chocolate covered crispies. Jeremy Lee from Quo Vadis comes forward with his take on the popular Italian liqueur and combines Campari with Grapefruit. This flavour embodies the ever popular Italian drink and makes for a perfect bitter-sweet hit for those October evenings as the days grow shorter. Completing our journey in October with a round trip back to South America, Martin Morales from Ceviche steps up and brings the favourite dessert of South America to London. His flavour combines the traditional savoury crunch of toasted Cancha and Salted Dulce De Leche ice cream.



For us taste is simple. Take our Fresh Mint Stracciatella gelato. It tastes more of fresh Mint than Mint, it sings of the freshness, not drowned in sugar or artificial flavorings. Our chocolate gelato is a sorbet, not because we wanted to make a low fat ice cream, but because as a sorbet we can make it even more chocolaty!

We are proud to say that we are sourcing the best ingredients in the markets and we will do whatever it takes to work with prime produce.

What we believe in.

We are passionate about the flavour and texture of our Gelato and we aim to preserve the tradition of artisan Italian Gelato making. We are keen to build partnerships with our clients and we encourage creativity and innovation. Some of our clients are market leaders which gives us a fantastic knowledge of the market needs.

The way we work.

Our gelato is made by our amazing team of skilled Gelato makers. We produce every day in the heart of London small batches of joy! The texture of Gelupo gelato is dense, much heavier than a standard ice cream. We achieve this by keeping our fat content low, and by using very special churning equipment that mixes our gelato ever-so-gently as it freezes. This density, and the low fat levels give a big hit of flavour, with a very clean finish.
