At Berthillon, quality rhymes with Passion . For more than 60 years, the ice cream maker from Île Saint-Louis has been delighting us with his sorbets and ice creams.
High quality products
Since the mid-1950s, gourmets flock to taste the artisanal creations of the Berthillon ice cream parlor. It all started in the heart of Paris, Raymond Berthillon, who had just celebrated his 30th birthday, ran a hotel café, “Le Bourgogne”, at 31 rue Saint Louis en l’île. Always looking for new experiences, he imagines putting back into service the ice turbine he had acquired a few years earlier. That day, without his realizing it, the family saga was born. Raymond Berthillon makes his ice cream with high quality products : whole milk, eggs, fresh cream that he goes to buy at dawn at the halls, at the Baltard pavilion on rue Berger. He relaunched sorbet, a product of oriental origin: the sharbet of the sultans, without cream, pure fruit, pure sugar.
Promoted by the Gault et Millau
