An historic Scottish ice-cream maker is setting up shop in Aberdeen.

Crolla’s, which was founded in Glasgow more than 120 years ago, will open the doors to its new Granite City branch – at 60 Rosemount Place – on Thursday.

Peter Crolla jnr, managing director and the fifth generation of the family behind the business, said: “In 1895, my great-grandfather left the warm sunshine of Italy for the less predictable climes of Scotland and set up his first shop in Queen Mary Street, Glasgow.

“We are very proud to have been producing traditional Italian ice cream ever since, for over 120 years, using our own secret family recipe.

“The Crolla’s team is very much looking forward to welcoming the people of Aberdeen to our new Rosemount store.”

By the 1950s, the Crolla family had opened an ice-cream factory and had 30 vans selling ice-cream around the streets of Glasgow.

They still supply ice-cream vans today but also shops, cafes, wholesalers, restaurants and hotels.

The firm operates from several sites in the Glasgow area, as well as shops in Perth and Preston, selling more than 80 flavours of ice-cream.

Customers can also to see their own creations come to life by mixing their favourite “gelato” and toppings to personalise their sweet treat.
