AWARD-winning Nairn bakery Ashers has launched its own ice cream range at one of their High Street shops which was once renowned for having the best vanilla in the north.

Ashers took over No 40 High Street as a retail outlet for its baked goodies a number of years ago, and last year branched into ice-cream production.

Once a café run by Jacapo Morganti, for more than 50 years it was famed for its ice-cream – and day trippers to the seaside at Nairn inevitably made the short walk up the street to get a cone from Jac’s.

Ashers’ boss Alister Asher said they are delighted to be bringing ices back to the shop where Jacapo made his tasty treats.

“We have been working on a number of recipes for about 18 months now and one of Jac’s relations, Joanne Hallam (nee Morganti) is our ice-cream maestro,” he said.

“She’s been making the usual flavours like vanilla, Ferrero Rocher and mint choc chip, and some exciting new recipes such as peach and prosecco.

“Jac was a well known character and he was sadly missed, but it’s nice to think his shop has gone full circle and is back as an ice cream parlour again and that one of his relations is involved.”
