About Us

The best ice cream is made in small batches, with fresh and simple all natural ingredients.

At 49 Below, we make real ice cream.

We have been making it naturally, locally and truthfully in Victoria, BC since 2015. Good ice cream is about feeling good, and we want to make memorable flavours that put a smile on your face.

We don’t use colourings, flavourings, or powdered milk - we prefer the real thing - and that starts with fresh milk, lots of cream, eggs, and sugar. Then we toast, simmer, bake, and extract real ingredients.

We do all this to help make it (hopefully) the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted. Most of all, we make it to be enjoyed, shared & savoured.

Some of the businesses we work with!

Fatso Peanut Butter
Victoria, B.C

We love partnering with our longtime friend and peanut butter powerhouse Jill Van Gyn to create a mouth watering peanut butter pint and ice cream sandwich. Fatso peanut butter is an all natural, high performance peanut butter enriched with plant based oils, flax seeds, and no added sugar. We thought this combo of ice cream and nutritious peanut butter would be the perfect treat … or even double as a totally acceptable meal…. because why not!

Discovery Coffee
Victoria, B.C

Discovery Coffee's cult following prompted us to partner with them to create a to die for ice cream flavour. As a part of our philanthropist series, all sales of this pint go towards the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria. Brownies and High Tide espresso? Even we couldn't think of a better combination.

Wildfire Bakery
Victoria, B.C

When making the perfect ice cream sandwich, the cookie is what really holds it all together. We quickly realised we would need a few helping hands to make our cookies. Our first call was to Wildfire Bakery. Specializing in artisan baking since 1998, Wildfire uses all organic ingredients, starting with locally grown wheat in Metchosin.

Dumpling Drop
Victoria, B.C

Not only do they make the best dumplings around, Tarn is also a treat to work with. We collaborated with her on our second Philanthropint and raised enough money to provide 64 meals at Our Place.
