Van Leeuwen is an artisanal producer at heart. When crafting both vegan and classic ice cream flavors, he designs everything around the natural, fresh ingredients to create the best-tasting product in the end.
In this video, Van Leeuwen creates tequila-infused vegan ice cream, treating each ingredient with equal importance from the cashew milk to coconut oil to the tequila itself.
When his first truck rolled out in 2008, Van Leeuwen wasn’t sure if the artisanal ice cream idea would resonate with New Yorkers, but it did. Today, Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream is a recognized establishment with trucks and stores on each coast.
Now that is a true master of craft.
