At Van Diemens Land Creamery, we love to create new and exciting things! We’re passionate about Tasmania and its special treasures, flavours and experiences. This passion has driven us to embark on our next venture. We are excited to announce the launch of our Van Diemens Land Creamery punt in Hobart’s Constitution Dock on Saturday 21st of October, 2017. Now you can find us at our Christmas Hills café near Elizabeth Town, in Constitution Dock next to Flippers, and in restaurants and speciality grocers around Tasmania.
THE FLAVOURS OF HOBART
To kick off the launch of our new punt, we feel it is only fitting that we create the Flavours of Hobart in an ice cream. We have selected 10 locations in Hobart that we’d like to celebrate and have created exclusive flavours to capture the essence of each location.
The Van Diemens Land Creamery’s Flavours of Hobart are:
· Sandy Bay – Saffron Pistachio
· Mt Wellington – Lemon Myrtle & Peach
· MONA – Chocolate Chilli Lime
· Derwent River – Hazelnut Mocha
· Tasman Bridge – Sea Salt Caramel
· Cascade Brewery – Choc Stout
· Salamanca – Honey Bacon
· North Hobart – Orange & Cardamom
· Royal Botanical Gardens – Lemon, Olive Oil & Rosemary
· Queens Domain – Pepperberry & Leatherwood Honey
But that’s not the whole story! We’ll only be creating 5 of the 10 flavours - and we need your help to choose. We invite all ice cream lovers to vote for their favourite Flavour of Hobart on our Facebook Poll and Instagram Competition #escapetheherd. The top 5 Flavours of Hobart will be created exclusively for you to come along and try at the launch of our punt on Saturday 21st of October, 2017. Check in at the launch at 10am to win the VDLC Long Weekend and be presented with your exclusive itinerary.
On top of that, one lucky voter will win a VDLC Long Weekend Package to experience the Flavours of Hobart. This includes a three-day itinerary for two people, including two nights’ accommodation at the new MACq 01 Hotel on Hobart’s beautiful waterfront; dinner at Frank Restaurant and Aloft; a visit to MONA and Cascade Brewery; and free, unlimited ice cream for the weekend at Van Diemens Land Creamery’s punt.
There’s just one catch … the winner will need to check in on their personal social media account each day with an entry of the day’s activities and highlights. The entry must include a photo and caption using ‘Dear Dairy’ to introduce the update.
We invite you to join us at our launch on Saturday October 21st 2017 to celebrate the Flavours of Hobart and for you to #escapetheherd!
