To celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas, gelato artist Hannah Wood has teamed up with Pāmu to launch the world’s first Deer Milk gelato.

From December 12th, Little Lato gelato parlours throughout Auckland and the Coromandel will feature a limited edition Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Gelato flavour, crafted from Pāmu’s award-winning Deer Milk.

“Here at Little ‘Lato we are all about creating gelato that is indulgently delicious, with our own creative twists,” Miss Wood said. “Christmas is a great excuse to acquaint unexpected ingredients with each other and so when Pāmu suggested the concept of a deer milk gelato we jumped on board! A single taste of the creamy deer milk and we knew it would be a winning ingredient to make a delicious gelato.”

Pāmu Deer Milk lead, Hamish Glendinning, said it was exciting to see the product available to the wide public. “To date we have focused on providing Pāmu Deer Milk as a luxury ingredient though the hospitality sector, which has been very successful, with the ingredient being used across savoury and sweet dishes on menus across range of New Zealand’s finest restaurants.

“Being able to bring the unique creamy taste to a wider market is something we have wanted to do for a while. Partnering with Hannah, who is renowned for her original and sometimes ‘out there’ flavour combinations, was a perfect fit for us.

“Pāmu Deer Milk is not your usual milk product. With double fat and double protein, deer milk offers a truly unique taste experience, and we wanted to partner with someone who shares our desire for innovation and pushing boundaries in terms of what is possible,” Mr Glendinning said.

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Gelato will be available exclusively at Little Lato’s gelato parlours in Auckland and Coromandel from 12th to the 24th December.
