Solley’s Double Cream is King of the Castle

Stephen Solley with the thick double creamDover Castle has become the latest Kent attraction to snap up Solley’s Farms’ thick double cream pots for its afternoon teas. Perched atop the world-famous White Cliffs, the English Heritage site now serves Solley’s dairy’s luxurious double cream in both its main restaurant and the underground Tunnels Tea Room.

Stephen Solley, managing director of Solley’s Farms, said: “Dover Castle already sells our award-winning ice cream, so it was a natural progression for us to supply them with our indulgent double cream for their afternoon teas, as well.

“It’s great to know that hungry visitors from all over the world will be enjoying our Kentish thick double cream with their scones this summer!”

Family-run Solley’s Farms launched its thick double cream earlier this year, timed for the busy summer season. The rich cream has a milk fat content of 60 per cent, compared to clotted cream’s 55 per cent, and is made with 100 per cent milk from a Jersey herd at the dairy expert’s neighbouring farm. Available in convenient 35g pots, it is perfect slathered on scones, cakes or fresh fruit.

Solley’s Farms has been supplying farm shops, delis, visitor attractions and pubs across Kent and beyond for almost 30 years. It is one of the largest independent ice cream producers in the South East, and all its products are Farm Assured and SALSA accredited (Safe And Local Supplier Approval).
