We’ve always known that fine liquor and good food is always synonymous to celebration.I used to be the type of person that didn’t appreciate anything that has liquor on it but as I’ve always loved the taste of fruit cake. As we all know, fruit cake is always made with a bit of liquor but that didn’t stop me from enjoying every single bite that I can get the moment I see them from my favorite bake shop or whenever my mom baked a loaf.
Who knew this combination would also be delicious when turned into ice cream?
FOG City Creamery, a popular, one-of-a-kind artisan ice cream brand, and Emperador Distillers, Inc., a company with a long tradition of bringing world-class liquor products to Filipino celebrations decided to combine their expertise and create something that can be enjoyed by many – especially ice cream lovers and liquor connoisseurs– the Fruit and Nut Deluxe.
FOG City’s expertly made Fruit and Nuts Deluxe ice cream has the signature touch of Emperador Deluxe’s distinct flavors of Palomino grapes toffee, almonds and honey. This perfectly complements the rich taste of different fruits and nuts and the creamy goodness of ice cream from Fog City. To be specific, this ice cream has dried apricots, pistachios, almonds and Emperador Deluxe.

“Emperador Deluxe is a luxurious blend that allows people to savor everyday luxury” Mr. Edward Gador, Brand Manager for Emperador Deluxe said.
“Why not have that taste of luxury in an ice cream? We are very happy to have Fog City as a partner in achieving this very unique creation!” adds Mr. Carlos Vergara, Managing Director for International Spirits.
“More is not always better,” Ms. Edy Gamboa points out, “but by using only the finest and purest ingredients, and by meticulously mixing all of these ingredients together, we can have a creation that has more depth in flavor and in taste. Having Emperador Deluxe as one of the key ingredients is a big privilege for us.”
I find this ice cream a perfect meal-ender. I think it’s even perfect on chilly nights when you’re just having good conversation with friends.
You’re probably wondering how much is the price of this luxurious ice cream. Well, you can get the Fruit and Nuts Deluxe at ₱350/pint, ₱680/Quart, and ₱1,310/Half-Gallon.
I’ve also tried some of Fog City’s best flavors like Ensaymada, Brandied Cherries, and Ferrero. And I am addicted to the Ensaymada!

Omg Ferrero! Wow! This is great especially this Christmas Season with friends as a meal ender! Such a treat!
mmm,,, the ensaymada one seems interesting. I don’t drink liquour but will try that one.:)
Emperador would be an interesting twist.
Interesting! I’m not fond of the taste of liquor but with it mixed in icecream, I think I’ll fall for it!
Well, how about that. Ice Cream and Liquor together? What a combo! Personally, I don’t drink, but this ice cream sounds interesting. I would like a try though. I don’t like fruit cake either, but there is one Italian Bread or Christmas Cake I should say called Panetone that I love so much and it is available during this holiday.
Hmmmm, the Ensaymada looks really yummy! Btw, an ice cream with a liquor is interesting! Would love to try it! 🙂
These are one of a kind flavours, I have an ice cream maker so I will make something like this.
I can’t wait for your recipe.
