“It was an easy decision. Learning how they started as a social enterprise with Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farm, while now also being supplied by the General Trias Dairy Raiseers Multi Purpose Cooperative and the Philippine Carabao Center. This was very on brand with our Philippine Craft Spirits where we try as much as possible to limit our suppliers and work with farmers through cooperatives,” Limpe-Aw said of the reason they decided to collaborate. The use of 100% carabao’s milk was also a factor in the decision adding “We do not like to compromise quality with our Philippine Craft Spirits line and we always use the real thing in producing the products featured in the gelato you’re trying today.”

Carabao’s milk, while richer is coincidentally more nutritious boasting 58% more calcium, 40% more protein and 43% less cholesterol than cow’s milk.

Guests enjoys the gelato ice cream by Karabella

Karabella founder Alfred Ng talked about how Karabella started as a means to help out just 2 carabao farmers in Gawad Kalinga’s Enchanted Farm Village. And how in 2018, when his daughter decided to change careers, he was left to manage this whole new business he knew nothing about. This is where Jan and EJ Buenaflor come in. EJ, at the time was still working as a banker but was convinced by his mother, Jan, to join the company as its Gelato chef. When Alfred asked Jan about her son’s qualifications, she said “he loves ice cream.” EJ was hired on the spot. The mother-son duo now currently involved in the production and marketing of Karabella gelato.

Ej, Karabella’s young and talended Gelato chef, presented their 5 new flavors that the guests were able to try throughout the event. Chocoholic (made with Very Old Captain Rum), Paradise Mango Rum Liqueur gelato (mango-cashew), Amadeo Coffee Liqueur gelato (coffee-cacao nibs), Manille Liqueur de Calamansi Gelato (calamansi-basil) and Intramuros Liqueur de Cacao gelato (tablea-chocolate chips)
