Morelli’s Ice Cream has unveiled a 4 x 1.5 metre sized mosaic of golfer Francesco Molinari made entirely of ice cream ingredients, at the brand’s flagship store in Portrush ahead of The Open Championship this week.
Nodding to Morelli’s Italian heritage, the masterpiece is a dedication to last year’s winner of the Claret Jug. The assembly took 10 hours, using 70kg of ice cream sprinkles and was helped in part by children from the Morelli family.
Established in Northern Ireland in 1911, Morelli’s is a family-owned, fourth generation ice cream brand that combines ingredients from some of Italy’s most prestigious flavour houses with Irish dairy products to create the country’s most famous and recognisable ice creams.
The mosaic will be on display in Morelli’s, Portrush from today until 22nd July.
Keep updated with Morelli’s on the brand’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts, and ice-cream lovers should make sure to visit the Portrush and Portstewart stores on Sunday 21st, especially if Molinari takes home the Claret Jug once again.
