Rowie's this for an ice cream flavour from Stew 'n' Drew?

Rowie's this for an ice cream flavour from Stew 'n' Drew?

It is part of the staple diet of many people in the north east. Rowies - or butteries - are consumed in their thousands every day.

But now Scotland’s very own answer to Ben and Jerry want to hear from Aberdonians whether they should go ahead with plans to create a rowie ice cream.

Moray-based ice cream manufacturer Stew 'n' Drew's are planning on creating the rowie flavoured dessert in time for their appearance at North Hop at The Lemon Tree on April 11.

But first, they're keen to discover if buttery aficionados would be interested in trying out the quirky flavour of ice cream.

The duo, who have been in business for just over a year, have quickly carved out a reputation for diversity and innovation.

Drew Parks, owner and ice cream maker, told STV: “We know the famous rowie is hugely popular in the Aberdeen area.

"So we are keen to gauge if locals would be interested in sampling it at the Aberdeen festival or not.

“We have some pretty creative and unusual flavours like coffee and doughnut, chorizo and caramel and whisky and smoked.

"It’s great to be able to come up with some wacky flavours of ice cream and we thought it would be fun to make a batch of the 'wowee rowie' ice cream at some point to see if it actually tastes good or not.

"We’ve already started thinking of flavours we could possibly pair it with, but we’ll wait and see what the public think before we start the creating process.”

The inaugural North Hop has already created a buzz in the city, following the success of the event in Inverness.

Five craft breweries, as well as drinks companies and food producers from across Scotland, will be exhibiting at the festival, which runs from 12 noon until 6pm on Saturday April 11 and 7pm until 1am on Sunday, April 12.

There is also plenty of music on the bill, including gigs from Aberdeen-based band, Best Girl Athlete; acoustic singer Margaret Finlayson; DJ HomeAlone, who has opened for top names such as pop sensation Lily Allen, Drake and world-renowned DJ Erol Alkan; and blues/rock band Strange Skies.

But we're intrigued by the prospect of a rowie ice cream. Now, it is up to you.
